S4-39: Patchwork Quilt, Part XXI

Quilt XIV

“Music doesn’t lie.  If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.”  – Jimi Hendrix


Why call this a “Patchwork Quilt” episode?  Well, sometime I have music that’s come into the studio that I just want to share with you.  It may not fit neatly into a program theme, or it may have simply caught my attention and I couldn’t wait.  And I’m a quilter, and I love the way seemingly disparate bits and pieces can come together to make a cohesive whole.  So it’s time to add another musical block to our ever-expanding Patchwork Quilt.
