We heard new music this morning from local sax man Irv Williams (celebrating his new album at the Artists’ Quarter this Friday and Saturday, March 1-2, 9pm each night). Also something new from my beloved funkstress Martha Redbone, and Chico Mann finally made their music available to people outside of Brooklyn! So we heard that, too. And new music from Jim White. Fun morning!
It’s an 80th Birthday in Blue for New Orleans’ own FATSDOMINO, along with more Birthday in Blue sounds from Fats’ longtime guitarist Roy Montrell, Clarence ‘Bon Ton’ Garlow, Rockabilly Pioneer Sid ‘HardRock’ Gunter, and from the world of Country Music,
The Man in Black-Johnny Cash, and Bluegrass Immortal Ralph Stanley, as well as the original leader of the Rolling Stones—the ill fated Brian Jones.
Kinshasha talked with with Ruth Peltason author of the new book, I Am Not My Breast Cancer.
If you or a loved one has or has had breast cancer, I Am Not My Breast Cancer is an invaluable tool. The book is written off of message board posts from an internet online support group, so you get the ebb and flow of conversation as women from all different walks of life weigh in on how this disease has and is affecting them. With over 800 contributing voices, the book has much to say. It covers topics from the obvious fear of the diagnosis to the less obvious discomforts and challenges that many women with breast cancer face alone.
