This morning I learned of the passing of one of North America’s greatest poets, novelists, and singer/songwriters of our time. Like many others who listen to public radio, it was just a few days ago I was listening to KCRW’s Chris Douridas interview Cohen after the release of his latest album, “You Want It Darker.” At 82, he had not been in the best of health, but such news always carries an element of surprise.

Capturing The Moment — Gary Clark Jr. and Diunna Greenleaf   Leave a comment

Gary & Diunna

This is one my favorite photos of Diunna, which captures one her classic looks — it’s so Diunna. Here, 17 year old Gary Clark Jr. is getting the “evil eye.”

Earlier in 2001, when he was 16, Gary represented Houston in the International Blues Competition.

It’s because of musicians like Diunna and Gary that the blues is alive and well –if you think not, you need to check out this KCRW, “Live In Studio” set.

This is one jamming live set by the best Texas has to offer.
