a note about this track

Capable of expressing the most fragile lyric beauty, Franco's chordal-based guitar style was more typically 'rough,' piling variation upon variation on top of a reiterated riff with mesmerizing effect

Victor Wooten (click for more info)
WYCE and Calvin College present Victor Wooten and JD Blair in concert. "The Funktopus" is the self-appointed nickname of maniacal bassist Victor Wooten. Using his thumb the way a guitarist uses a pick, Wooten's mile-a-minute string-popping and dance-floor throbbing often sounds like the product of eight slithering arms. Wooten will be accompanied by longtime collaborator JD Blair, a funky drummer in his own right. Victor Wooten and JD Blair perform on Saturday, March 14th at 8pm at Calvin's Fine Arts Center.

a note about this track

When Allen was 11, she was singing an Oasis tune in the school playground when a teacher overheard her and told her she had talent and suggested she do something with it. She took singing lessons with the teacher. She sang at a school play and claimed that the audience was brought to tears at the sight of a troubled young girl doing something good.
