Some call me nature, others call me mother or bitch – earth

free kroes control, Iceland, mother earth

Hoe druk ik ook ben, hoe vroeg ik ook op pad moet, ik ben bijna altijd wel vroeger wakker dan dat, en koekeloer dan als wakker wordt en ochtend ritueel even op Feestboek, Twitter en YouTube of er nog mooie dingen opduikelen om de dag mee te beginnen. Soms blog ik daar over en soms post ik het alleen als #notetoself zoals ik dat zo graag noem. In de vergaarbak die ik maar inspiratie heb gedoopt.

Daarom maak ik ook mijn playlist(s) in YouTube, (ik heb geen Spotify meer, misschien toch weer eens doen), waaronder Ochtend Rituelen en 2015 – ways to keep moving.

Aldus zag ik vanmorgen Julia Roberts, of liever gezegd hoorde ik haar, in name of Mother Earth. Heaven. Bij dit korte clipje. Fijn en indrukwekkend. Op Omeleto, nog nooit van gehoord maar wat zegt dat nou tegenwoordig.

Daarvoor luisterde ik, heel vroeg nog, naar Norah Jones

Norah Jones fans likely remember Come Away With Me — the 2002 recording which introduced her smoke-infused twang to the world. That album, like all of hers since, came out on Blue Note Records, merging her voice with those of major jazz artists of yesterday and the present. During the Blue Note at 75 concert, she thanked her Blue Note “family,” then introduced “one of the best bands I’ve ever played with.” Jaws dropped when an all-star rhythm section of Jason Moran (piano), John Patitucci (bass) and Brian Blade (drums) walked out — with 80-year-old legend Wayne Shorter accompanying on soprano saxophone.

Backed by that dream team, Norah Jones sang “I’ve Got to See You Again,” originally from Come Away With Me. Gepubliceerd op 11 jun. 2014

en werd vervolgens opgeschrikt, in the most positive way, door een andere Typhoon dan ik dacht te kennen

en zijn verhaal, wat eronder stond en hieronder staat, deed me denken aan iemand die ik ken die het ook fiks vor zijn kiezen heeft gehad en nog wel. Dus voor Ruud.

The appropriately named Typhoon is a sprawling band with an epic sound. The group from Portland, Ore. crafts rock anthems like emotional tidal waves, propelled by the stories of frontman Kyle Morton. His deeply personal tales are often full of grief and loss. But just as often they celebrate and praise life’s simple wonders. Morton himself is a very grateful (and lucky) man who writes songs as if he were living on borrowed time. That’s because a random bug bite when he was a child left him with a monstrous case of Lyme disease that led to multiple organ failures. Morton’s own father donated a kidney to save his son’s life.

At 27, with a backing band of a dozen musicians, Morton and the rest of Typhoon are making some of the most poignant pop tunes around. We’ve been following this group for a few years now, but Typhoon has never done anything quite like what you can hear on its latest album, White Lighter. The songs are by far the best arranged and most compelling of the group’s nearly 10-year run.

Somehow everyone in Typhoon not only managed to fit behind the Tiny Desk, but also managed to shine in this performance. If you’re looking for music that touches your heart, that helps you appreciate the everyday, sit back and get ready for Typhoon to carry you away. –BOB BOILEN
