In The Community: The Plein-Aire Paint-Off is up at the Hockaday Museum of Art, fresh off the artists' brushes. Dan Fagre and Lisa Keown's show is on the first level -- about the vanishing glaciers of Glacier National Park, it is a true labor of love by scientists from the USGS. Here's another website comparing glacier photos from the early 20th Century and recent decades.

Congrats to NPR's Performance Today for their coverage of the Van Cliburn Piano Competition this year.
Montana Public Radio played Duke Ellington's important 1956 performance of Crescendo in Blue during drive-time today. It was from the restored live tapes which constitute Ellington at Newport (Complete). Paul Gonsalves' incredibly long and brilliant sax solo with Duke and a rhythm section is still unsurpassed. I heard an Afro-Beat International program not too long ago about Boston native Gonsalves' familial and musical roots in the Cape Verde Islands and New England whaling ships.
I finished the video of Toni Bentley at Harvard, and won her enthusiastic approval. Next, I'll add some new photos to Ida Rubinstein's Website, thanks to Toni's scholarship.
