The Right Note

That whole post punk period was an amazing time to be a music fan … Music was in a transitional stage from ‘78 to ‘82 and you had a mental amount of music from both sides of the Atlantic.

We are a twenty–five minute drive from Cork City, five minutes from Macroom and eleven hours and forty minutes from Detroit, Michigan.

The final few minutes drive into rural Cork can be something of a trial if you are not generally used to anything less than an eight–lane highway — do remember to keep to the left and watch out for sight–seeing cows.

All That Jazz …

The late great John Coltrane, saxophonist and composer, was canonised in 2007 as St John William Coltrane by the African Orthodox Christian Church — a primarily African–American denomination founded in the United States in 1921 with approximately 15 parishes and 5,000 members today. The St John Will–I–Am Coltrane African Orthodox Church, San Francisco is the only African Orthodox Church which incorporates Coltrane’s music and lyrics as prayers in its liturgy.
