BBs - evening commutes this week.
Went to MoMA yesterday and saw the preview of the Cartier-Bresson exhibit. Wonderful large selection of small prints. So many that we had a visual overload and will need to return next week. All B&W images.
While I was ill I saw a kind hearted movie on BlueRay - "Taking Woodstock." There was a peaceful scene in the movie where uin the background on a hill above the farm where Ravi Shankar played on stage. This led me to investigate sitar music again, an instrument that years ago I found extremely grating. Less famous than Ravi is Nikhil Banerjee, a quiet master who hated to be recorded and who died in 1986. If you have an open mind listen to this. There is a wonderful selection of of his taped live concerts available.
Have a great weekend.
