Guys.............had intended to mention this earlier this weekend, but Mrs. Strike and I saw Cassandra Wilson in performance at the Nashville Symphony Hall, accompanied on three selections by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. She performed selections across the gamut of her musical output, with three selections from my absolute favorite CD of hers, New Moon Daughter. To say that I have been damn near MESMERIZED by this CD over the last 15 years or so is an understatement.
And you can imagine my damn near SHOCK when only the second selection of the nite was my ABSOLUTE favorite recording of hers, Harvest Moon
from NMD CD, and she was accompanied by the Nashville Symphony. It was absolutely an almost ethereal experience for me, and your humble poster was damn near shaking I was so moved. Mrs. Strike is very familiar AND understanding of my affection for this lady as an artist, as I have often stated to Mrs. Strike that she is my dear wife, but Cassandra is my "girl".
Also performed from New Moon Daughter was Love is Blindness
, and I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry
. As you can probably tell, it was quite a nite for me, although your humble poster was a "tad" disappointed that the total performance time was just short of an hour.
