April 18 - Playlist Spotlight

His name is David Ornette Cherry and what a joyful kaleidoscope of sound he and his band members, Organic Roots, created at Jimmy Maks on Thursday, April 16.  Not only was David celebrating his birthday, which was on April 13, but he was celebrating the release of his latest CD Organic Journey, making it the fifth and final CD in the "Organic" series.

The blend of music was filled with worldy sounds with one band member playing the accordian while another played the electronic soundscape.  That's actually nothing when you learn about the many instruments David plays: piano, spirit flute, dousn ' gounni, melodica and oh ya, don't forgot the computer, a MAC was sitting on top of the piano.  Yes, if you know how to produce music then you know the right computerized tool to use is a MAC.
