REQUIRED LISTEN: Jonathan Glen Wood – Ballad of Jon

Ballad of Jon cover art

Jonathan Glen Wood is a man of many talents and a man of many projects – - Old Baby, Wood & Sutherland, Jaye Jayle.  This week he released a solo album, Ballad of Jon.  I’ve listened to it a hundred times already.  Every listen feels like you’re opening a time capsule and the smell of old books, pine trees and bourbon wafts out.  If you don’t listen to it at least once all of the way through, we are not friends anymore.  Find it at bandcamp, Spotify, itunes, or buy the CD at one of our fine local record stores.  Enjoy…

Ms. Hill sang and deeply appreciated music at a young age, known for being very animated, she also acted, danced and enjoyed performance art of various kinds. She spent her formative years acting in plays and being cast in television commercials, as well as the daytime drama ‘As the World Turns’, Steven Soderbergh’s ‘King of the Hill’, and ‘Sister Act II’ with Whoopi Goldberg. Ironically all of this was done while she was still a full-time student. After graduating high school with stellar grades, she attended Columbia University in New York while a member of the then up and coming musical group the Fugees. Ms. Hill was a great academician, but her unique gifts, interest and pursuits would take her in the direction of profound experience and great accomplishment not just in the classroom, but also beyond it. This of course would not negatively alter her life-long love of learning, invention and acquiring knowledge, but would enhance it. She often envisioned herself as able to very naturally make the kind of great contributions that often come from people with great minds and the passion and discipline required in order to bring great things into fruition. She would establish a reputation in the music world as the lone female member of The Fugees, whose record sales would make them the second biggest selling R&B act worldwide since Michael Jackson. She launched her solo career with the release of the commercially successful and critically acclaimed album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. The recording earned a record breaking five Grammy Awards.
