I was tired, I needed to lay down on the couch, and some trance-inducing Music.. that kind of hypnotic feel, good for my bones and mind. I could not reach my discs, so, Youtube, here we go. Its Big Brother-like algorythm showed me among suggestions Om Shanti Om, by music legend Don Cherry: the turkish moon was suddenly up to the sky of my room's ceiling: La luna turca
A intimate music trip of 8 tracks, originally recorded for RAI (the italian public broadcasting company) in 1976, a TV episode “Incontro con Don Cherry” presented by Franco Fayenz, unreleased, then, dusted off by Black Sweat records on July 2020. 
Thank you YT, thank you algorithm, thank you Black Sweat, and thank you good old taste for Music of good old RAI TV. 
As stated by Don Cherry, this quartet is not Don Cherry, it was a collective called Organic Music Tapestry, because all the instruments they play are natural, of Nature.. and the tapestry, by his wife.
A blissful compendium of mesmeric vibes, spiritually retuning your innermost self, chants, pocket trumpet, tanpura (played by Cherry's wife, Moki), ngoni and berimbau. Genius of improvisation. Trumpeter Don Cherry 'fuses' world fusion, old western-like ceremonial music with a dansant mystique - my two cents.
Details for music nerds on Discogs.
I reached the needed inner consciousness regained my rest.
Wish I have some money to buy this record. 

Funny fact: impossible to retrieve on RAI's archives, the whole show is featured on YT, originally broadcasted from a Brazilian TV.

Whole show in a sole video, here

Brilliant work indeed by cartoon animation and illustration artist Neil William, aka Stelos485 for Ramones' epic piece Sheena is punk rocker.

More stuff on Ramones and more gold from Stelos485 on his channel. Also, his pinterest page is a true source of inspiration.

Dan Peters happy birthday

Gang of Four, Solid Gold

Dan Peters, born today August 18th, 1967, happy birthday, music pal: better known as Mudhoney's great drummer, and no less, as the original drummer for Nirvana's Sliver - notwithstanding the video released to promote Incestice in 1993 features Dave Ghrol: Dan tells the backstory in this short clip. Pretty interesting: briefly, Kurt Cobain did not exactly excel fairplay here. And later so did Screaming Tree too, which he joined in 1991, on tour. Funny-not-so-funny story.

Lucky for him, and for the entire world of people enjoying punk rock, he went on with Mudhoney. I saw them performing live only once, ages ago in Rome, - how great, they were ace. To me, unforgettable. Check here, pix and vids included, 2006, May 20th.

Anyway, how did everything start for Daniel Joe Peters? Answer: drumsticks gifted to him from his mother's drummer when he was a kid, and some Solid Gold, Gang of Four's Solid Gold. The vinyl which, it seems, changed the course of his life. 

Again, happy birthday. Well, one more time (he) is Good enough for me.
