Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #353 is an hour of visionary acoustic improv music featuring the Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals, native flute, ukulele, 12- and 6- string acoustic guitars and celtic harp, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on congas and native drums. Recorded on a warm but overcast May day at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington, Massachusetts, today’s show begins with the soulful and meditative “For The Blessing Of Life”, a lush prayer to hope featuring gorgeous native flute from Mariam and spacious, jazzy piano figurations from Bob. “Alchemical Words” is a deeply beautiful improv piece about the power of words featuring the best from everyone in the combo; Craig’s steady, authoritative congas, Mariam’s praise-filled lyric, lush vocal and chiming 12-string acoustic, and Bob’s imaginative and questing piano work. “Into The Morning We Sail” is driven along by Mariam’s ukulele and mystical lyrics and is a meditative, minimalist piece that leads into the bittersweet innocence of “May We Start All Over Again”, another languid, gorgeous piece featuring a lovely, fragile melody from Mariam. We conclude today’s show with lovely and assured takes of three of Mariam’s recorded songs, the hopeful, deep “Restore”, the bittersweet and deeply emotional “Rainbows” and the always fun and joyful “Pele”.
