Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour with Mariam Massaro
"Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #154 reflects the introspective calm of a snowbound February afternoon her at Singing Brook Studio in the snowy Berkshires. Mariam Massaro and Bob Sherwood weave a series of reflective, skilful improvisations from Mariam's beautiful, unusual poetry. We begin with the deep, calm "Oh Couray Couray" which blends Mariam's chanting and moonlit poetry with her ukelele and Bob's flowing piano accompaniment to sweet and calming effect. Next is "In The Morning" wherein Mariam accompanies her chants and word paintings with acoustic guitar and Bob's piano to bluesy effect. The driving, Celtic strains of "Out Of Darkness I See The Light" follow, creating a driving prayer of gratefulness out of a circular, assertive progression. Next up is the peaceful, reflective "Rainbow Circle Around The Moon"/"Realization" and we follow this with a winter reflection called "To The Snow Queen", a frosty meditation accompanied by Mariam's acoustic guitar and Bob's piano. We close with "It's Just That Way", a lovely, uplifting paean to goodbyes and to love deferred.
