Art Links For 08/17/2009

I love these paintings of children.  Kimi Sakaki really captures the innocent beauty of childhood.  The older I get the little ones to me seem more and more Buddha-like or angelic.  But then again, I don't have to feed them. ;-)

Joni Mitchell - Woodstock (Big Sur, CA 1969)
This is a wonderful version of Joni Mitchell's classic and definitive song about Woodstock recorded just after the event in one of my favorite places on Earth - Big Sur.  I had never heard this version before yesterday.

Eric Clapton - Forty-Four
Eric Clapton's tribute to his Howlin' Wolf and Hubert Sumlin roots.  Here's Blues Legend Howlin' Wolf's version of Roosevelt Sykes' great song 44 Blues (1929). 

Backing Wolf, who sang and played harmonica, were Hubert Sumlin and Jody Williams (electric guitars), Otis Spann (piano), Willie Dixon (bass), and Earl Phillips (drums). Together they transformed "Forty Four" into a Chicago blues, with prominent guitar lines and an incessant "martial shuffle on the snare drum plus a bass drum that slammed down like an industrial punch-press."[4] Wolf retained Sykes' handgun reference and added "Well I'm so mad this morning, I don't know where in the world to go." With Howlin' Wolf's gruff and overpowering vocal style, the overall effect was menacing.[4]
