Tribute to Mose Allison

A tribute to ‘the Jazz Sage’ Mose Allison, who passed away yesterday morning (15th November 2016) at age 89. Allison struck the perfect balance between New York hipster cool and down-home Mississippi folk wisdom, as he straddled the line between Delta Blues and Modernist Jazz with an easy unpretentiousness. Here are some of of his recordings – the word from Mose himself as well as lovingly crafted renditions of songs by Willie Dixon, Percy Mayfield, Willie Love, Sonny Boy Williamson, Duke Ellington, Johnny Fuller and Ray Noble. Musical edition features almost an hour of Allison wonderland!

Jazz – A tribute to Pink Floyd

Tuesday night with excitement of completely  full Sri Aurobindo Auditorium, Bharat Nivas for the concert tribute to Pink Floyd by Rita Marcotulli Jazz Ensemble.
Pink Floyd in jazz? Some might have asked but what we heard was an unique fusion of known songs as from the early “Astronomy Domine?” and “Set the controls to the hart of the sun”, to the best known “Money”, “Us and them”, “The wall”, “Crazy diamond”, to the less known “Saint Tropez”, “Cyrrus minor”.
Pink Floysd’s songs interwoven with jazz solos of the members of the band went higher than audience’s expectations; and yet as very natural flow of clear electric pieces fused with jazz.
Presented by the Italian Pavilion.

Raiz – Voice
Rita Marcotulli – Pianoforte and keyboard
Andy Sheppard – Sax
Alessandro Paternesi – Drums
Ares Tavolazzi – Electric Bass
Michele Rabbia – percussion and electronics
Fausto Mesolella – Guitar and effects

Invisible Wings

Coopybook film presented last night at Kale Kendra, Bharat Nivas, Pavilion of India in International Zone film by Hari M Mohanan Invisible Wings.
Hari started with his cycle journey through Kerlala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu a week ago, and as he is saying that his journey is a tribute to Vijay. Vijay, small tea shop owner, with his wife Mohana is the star of Invisible Wings where he talks about his passion – traveling.
Although the documentary is long about 10 minutes the way that is done (amazing!) tells us another story of deep passion of Hari and his friends who were inspired by the story of a small tea shop owner Vijay ….

In first part we saw a short documentary made by Tatiana, followed by Aster Patel’s talk on The Transition of our Time. Remembrance, attended by many, brought up some sharing, starting with Arabinda’s son Robert, his close assistant Mousumi Mukherji, and others. Professor Arabinda Basu born in 1918 – 2012 was well known in Ashram, Auroville and abroad as scholar on Sri Aurobindo’s teachings.
