Deep Threes Posts

Deep Threes Radio #6 Playlist

It’s been five weeks since the tragic explosion on the drilling platform Deepwater Horizon that trigger the massive BP Oil Spill. If comedy equals tragedy plus time, like it or not, just enough time has passed for a satirical Tweeter to gain popularity.

Thee is still some hope that BP can plug the well and save beaches like the one above. But a new internal report indicates the company ignored the warning signs. Are we destined to see the mouth of the Mississippi River resemble the picture below? Corporate responsibility does not happen overnight – or even in 2 1/2 fortnights.

The music that rose to the surface for this week’s Deep Threes is like a soundtrack for a post-modern beach party. Music that colors the background while you fire up the barbecue.  A hot dance set to get down in the sand. Blues and jazz to reach for the blankets by, topped off with introspective pieces to listen to at sunrise.

There’s not a tar ball in the bunch. So break out your coolers and start a bonfire. Frankie and Annette would never know what hit them – or washed ashore.

A Hula Dancer, The Rockettes And Lou Reed Walk Into This Bar…

We’ll take a detour from the electric highway and go on a carriage ride set to acoustic music on Deep Threes Radio #7. French guitarist Claude Bourbon will pace the excursion with a piece from “The Travelin’ Man”. Claude’s mastery shines in his version of “Bolero”.

Hawaiian duo Hapa is touring the Western U.S. and Canada this summer. They accompany a dramatic solo hula dance in this next video. Charles Kaupu sets the stage with his world famous chanting.

Nawang Khechog will guide us through the valleys of our soundscape with a track from Quiet Mind. His “Daily Prayer And Practice Of The Dalai Lama” scores this colorful slide show from Vasusuzy.

One fine morning last week, I put on a New York (public radio) station – on my cell phone. With apologies to The Velvet Underground, I couldn’t believe the underwriting announcements I heard for the Dalai Lama’s talks at Radio City Music Hall. Despite all the implications, I couldn’t stop doing the computations of the Rockettes joining His Holiness onstage. Here’s a video of revered cooking show host and author Paula Deen shakin’ it with Santa’s fine, fine helpers…

… finally, it took this string of random images from Degs and Gaz to make me feel saved by “Rock & Roll”. And it was all right.
