Lance Canales & The Flood - Plane Wreck At Los Gatos (Deportee)
In 1948, a plane carrying 32 passengers crashed in the Los Gatos Canyon, California killing everyone on board. The media, including the New York Times, listed the names of the pilots, the flight attendant and the immigration guard but all 28 of the migrant workers (braceros) were labeled as deportees. This angered folk singer Woody Gutherie who wrote a poem about the crash. Almost ten years later, school teacher Martin Hoffman composed a melody to Gutherie's poem and that song became well known with covers by the likes of Johnny Cash, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan and many more.
Around 2010 Central Valley writer Tim Z. Hernandez discovered the story and soon began a project of finding the names and surviving relatives. Soon after musician Lance Canales joined the journey and composed his own version of the legendary song with Hernandez reading all the names of the deceased workers. Thanks to a fundraiser spearheaded by the two artist a new head stone has been built in the Holy Cross honoring all 32 passengers.

Aretha Franklin (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman - Kennedy Center Honors 2015
Aretha rules. Here is one of my favourite disco era songs even if I still think disco sucks.
I listen to recordings of Mandarin Chinese lessons and conversations. Not music. I seriously doubt that listening to music would help anyone think outside the box as suggested by the opening title of this thread. Actually, I doubt you could do anything to stimulate cross linear, non-linear,spherical, left vs right brain thinking.
I suspect that after you graduate through a typical school system, something in your brain dies forever and there's no going back. LOL!
..txs krop. i never hear that before. nice suprise.

From post #320 - Bernard "Pretty" Purdie - drums
I've been learning drums the past 2 years or so, and this video of Bernard Purdie teaching how to do the "Purdie Shuffle" is about the most joyful, uplifting video I've found on youtube. For a while I'd watch this near daily as a pickmeup. He is one happy man, and a great drummer.
..txs mobo. very nice. i'm a long time hand drummer myself.

Sarah Lee Guthrie - I've Got to Know
Song by Woody Guthrie
Sarah Lee Guthrie - My Peace
In times like this... I tend to reach back to my family's songs and find something appropriate. In this case... I didn't have to go to far to find this beautiful little song. It was truly one of the last songs Grandpa Woody ever wrote. My father Arlo found the lyrics scribbled down on a piece of paper and translated them into these two short verses... then put them to this melody... so beautiful... so soothing... assuring.. peaceful... I thought we could use a bit of this today.
