Congrats to Mavis Staples for her Grammy nomination, and to Bill Frisell, Donny McCaslin, Motema Records, Merge, Imogen Heap and all the rest. The Mavis is part of an EP that is preview for an upcoming film and also includes two songs by Son Little. I had to look it up to know that Mavis won a Grammy -TM for “You Are Not Alone” with Jeff Tweety but is not her self a “grammy” because although 76 in age she is childless. In two years they should release on vinyl a Mavis Staples 78 rpm. LWATCDR.
edit to add: Harry Smith call your dybbuk. Happy Hannukah. I’m supposedly working on a seasonal piece called “Led Dreidl Dread” and one called “Bitch, I’m Streisand”.
