THE CINEMATIC ORCHESTRA ft. FONTELLA BASS  -  Familiar Ground
from Ma Fleur (2007)

Fontella tends her gospel roots, and strange late-flowering blooms emerge.

:(  Glad to have caught the tail end of her career, now to dig back.

Take Five - by Dave Brubeck.  With special guest vocalist, the incomparable Carmen Macrae.

I am posting this in honour of Brubeck’s passing. Vale.

One Up! MoMA Acquires Its First Classic Video Games as Art
Hyperallergic has learned that through a quiet acquisition process undertaken over the past year led by architecture and design curator Paola Antonelli, the Museum of Modern Art has brought 14 video games into its collection as a “new category” of artwork.

Well, this is news. Good or ill? Most of these are commercially successful and already quite well-known among gamers.  I wonder how the older ones will manifest themselves. Cartridges are probably not pleasant for conservators.
