Fabulous Jazz Clarinetist Anat Cohen

Fall is a good time to listen to jazz, when the weather is chilly and dramatic, and the recent discovery of Anat Cohen's 2012 CD Claroscuro is highly recommended.  Best of all is cut #4, "As Rosas Nao Falam," (the roses don't talk) composed by Brazilian Angenor de Oliveira (known as Cartola.)  Now I'm on a quest to discover more great musicians playing other Cartola compositions

More about Cartola here:  (website is in Portuguese, which amazingly I can still read pretty well)  http://www.cartola.org.br/cartola.html

Watermelon Minky and Bird Alphabet Fabric Blankets

My own designed Alphabet fabric, at Spoonflower, combined with soft Minky watermelon-colored fabric, make these blankets for twin grandsons Cole and Wilson Taylor soft and cuddly.
