A Lion's Song

I'm so feeling this song right now. Gregory Porter is an amazing talent and I highly recommend his new album "Be Good", it's maybe the best album by a Jazz singer since Cassandra Wilson's "New Moon Daughter." An instant classic; lyrics, music, arrangements, the whole kit and kaboodle. Check out Cave Canem's own Holly Bass dancing through this video, which was shot in DC at the Hirschorn.

Halfway in the day-
marsh reeds pushing up
through asphalt

Her eyes as
she learns Pushkin was Black-
Russian blue sky

Mother's Day-
a tongue slices through
a hot biscuit

Until next we meet, may all your potatoes be sweet (and dusted with cinnamon).
