Keeping in rhythm

Posted By on June 5, 2012

So I don’t miss my commitment, here’s my weekly blog. Believe it or not, it’s again about Invisible Soul. On Sunday, I headlined a two-hour program of Invisible Soul tracks largely based on Boddie Recording Company, the three-CD set Numero Group released in November. I, Shari and Jeff also included some tracks friends have given me over the past year and a half I’ve been developing the project: one cut by the Quails and two by Ruby Carter and the Exceptional Three.

The show at WRUW went well. I’ve gotten a lot of good feedback from it and hope the three of us do a sequel or two, particularly now that Lou Ragland and the Hesitations (and, I hear, the Chosen Few) are going to perform at Beachland Aug. 24. In addition, the Happy Dog may be interested in doing Invisible Soul nights—or at least a night.

So the project is moving ahead. I’m closing in on finishing a chapter about Motown and its relation to Cleveland; by midmonth I have to submit that and a revised outline to the press I’ve been talking with since last fall. Whatever happens with that press, I’m going ahead with a project that continues to gain momentum.
