Our favorite wine. It's a Ripasso. Passed back thru the sediment of the grapes... Mmmmmmmm. Jeff Golub turned us on to Amarone.

Dreamer to Dream

This is worth celebrating on SO many levels. And they thought if they killed the dreamer, the dream would die too... It didn't.

Support in Action


You've heard us say it only costs $2.26 to provide a meal to a homeless man, women or child. But did you know that meal has the power to change a life? A person shows up at the Nashville Rescue Mission hungry and searching for a hot nutritious meal, and what they find is the life God had in mind for them in the first place. Once inside our facility, information is presented on the Mission's life-recovery programs and a path that ultimately leads to a way off the streets. By providing a hot meal for someone in need, your support in action results in another life restored and produces another contributing member of our community.

Martin Luther King, Jr. on Jazz

quoted in DownBeat Magazine, January 2011

 

"God had wrought many things out of oppression. He has endowed his creatures with the capacity to create, and from this capacity have flowed the sweet songs of sorrow and joy that have allowed man to cope with his environment in many situations.

Jazz speaks of life. The blues tell the stories of life's difficulties, and if you will think for a moment, you will realize that they take the harsh realities of life and put them into music only to come out with some new hope or sense of triumph. This is triumphant music.

Modern jazz has continued in this tradition, singing the songs of more complicated urban existence. When life itself offers no order and meaning, the musician creates an order and meaning from the sounds of earth which flow through his instrument.

It is no wonder that so much of the search for identity among American Negroes was championed by jazz musicians. Long before the modern essayists and scholars wrote of 'racial identity' as a problem for a multi-racial world, musicians were returning to their roots to affirm that which was stirring within their souls.

Much of the power of our Freedom Movement in the United States has come from this music. It has strengthened us with its powerful rhythms when courage began to fail. It has calmed us with its rich harmonies when spirits began to lag. This has been true from the early days of the simple Negro Spiritual. And now, Jazz is exported to the world.

For in the particular struggle of the Negro in America there is something akin to the universal struggle of modern man. Everybody has the blues. Everybody longs for meaning. Everybody needs to love and be loved. Everybody needs to clap hands and be happy. Everybody longs for Faith. In music, especially in that broad category called Jazz, there is a stepping stone toward all of these."

--Martin Luther King, Jr., Berlin 1964, quoted in DownBeat Magazine, January 2011.
