​Yes, beautiful playing, Michael!  I think this version of "Milton at 409" should begin with a flamenco cadenza.  It could emerge out of the opening exhaust fumes.

"La Princessa" is lovely, Michael Bryson -- thank you for sharing it! I'm currently enjoying your "Midnight Blues" and thinking we might have to go with two lead guitars (The Milton Brothers and Sisters Band?).


And for anyone who doesn't know about Louis Schwartz's prodigious vocal chops, here's a sample --

Perhaps a bit of flamenco guitar as well? A different tradition, to be sure, but one I'm sure a poet from a musician's household might have appreciated had he run across it.

Okay, I'm in for the drums. Tell Chris Grose to get ready. Lee

Happy to take up rhythm guitar.  Vocals, too.

Dear Angelica, Gardner, and All:



In this original practices group, Gardner should take the bass-playing Brian Wilson slot. Angelica might move to cello, as we hear on "Good Vibrations." I'll contribute Chuck Berry-style lead guitar, a la Carl Wilson. We still have openings for rhythm guitar, drums, and more.



Anyone for Theremin?



Speaking of blasts from the past, Chris Grose and I revisit Milton's *Maske* here --

Chris and Steve play the blues: "Glutinous Heat" is adapted from John Milton's *Maske at Ludlow Castle*, particularly the temptation speeches of Comus.

With every good wish,

Steve

Dear all, especially Gardner,

Doesn’t Stephen Buhler (U o’ Nebraska) also play bass. I used to in my youth. I’m thinking a "viol trio" that I hope will not be a "vile trial" on the ears! Nice to join in on the birthday cheer. My best to all.

Those of us grounded in additional forms of ancient music could also sing "He's so fine, he's 409."


Especially on original instruments with original performance practices.

(I claim bass.)

Happy birthday, John Milton!

Here in Bloomington California, at Bloomington High School, we celebrated, early, Milton's birthday with a reading of Lycidas-and a discussion of the importance and value of Milton and poetry. The students were enthusiastic and curious. Milton is not dead! He lives on and will for eons.
