Joe, in a later vein, Mary Lou Williams's Black Saint of the Andes is worth checking out. It's her tribute to Saint Martin de Porres.

Cecile those were one night marriages. The wiki stuff is pretty bizarre with Huey Long and then his stint as an escort to rich cougars in Cuba. Charlie had an .. Interesting life

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm counting.
  Thu. 12/4/14 9:58am Brendan:

Welcome Swazey. I too was a first time listener not too long ago. I think you'll fond that we are all pretty good, normal folk once you take your clothes off and listen naked like the rest of us.

Hey, wood-elf! @PKNY: How about 3 hours of "To Love Somebody"?
  Thu. 12/4/14 10:09am Brendan:

Joe . This is quite possibly exactly the f'ing awesome type of jam that is going to springboard me into an unstoppably groovy day, replete with tremendous funkiness.
Avatar    Thu. 12/4/14 10:09am PKNY:

I'm loving that all these funk/soul/psych comps from all over the world are surfacing, there's always something interesting. If I remember correctly, I heard a track from an Iranian one that sounded like Can with a horn section, and the vocalist was doing his best Focus-"Hocus Pocus" impression.
Avatar Thu. 12/4/14 10:10am Joe McG:

@Brendan: Glad to be your springboard into groovy! My new slogan.
Avatar    Thu. 12/4/14 10:10am PKNY:

@Joe - I've heard some pretty incredible version of TLS, so a 3 hour set of that doesn't sound like a burden.
