The word "genius" has been overused for ages, but applying it to a choice of song is really stretching. In addition to apparently being a record label, "Calle 54" is also the title of an extraordinary latin jazz dvd. Thanks for the Chris Massey link; any drummer who can swing that hard in seven definitely deserves our attention. Incidentally, can you imagine the Cole Porter classic "So In Love" being done in seven? How about as a duet for vocals and body percussion? Check this out: http://rosanaeckert.com/live/

It's my understanding that the Nat Cole LPs in Spanish and Portuguese sold quite well to American buyers. They were in the catalog for years.

You didn't have to understand either language to appreciate the warmth that Cole brought to the mic.

I was delighted to discover a piece on Bill Frisell's Beautiful Dreamer that's dedicated to the artist Charles Cajori. It's entitled "A Worthy Endeavor (for Cajori)." Cajori was a founding member of the Tanager Gallery in 1952. Now in his 89th year, he's one of the last of the generation of painters who came to prominence in the dynamic post-war art world centered in New York. And he's a jazz aficionado whose recollections of New York nights digging Prez, Bird, Sonny Rollins, Ornette, and many others have fueled my imagination for years.

Here's a link to a recent essay on Cajori by Ben La Rocco in which he describes "the sense of individual struggle with history and lineage that Cajori's art exemplifies."
