5&1, Part 20: It’s All About That Bass

By Mark Meynell

The great jazz bass player Charlie Haden, once said this:

The bass, no matter what kind of music you’re playing, it just enhances the sound and makes everything sound more beautiful and full. When the bass stops, the bottom kind of drops out of everything.

—Charlie Haden

Oh, Freedom: Words & Music for Juneteenth

By Ruth Naomi Floyd

[Editor’s note: For Juneteenth last year, Ruth Naomi Floyd (known by many in the Rabbit Room readership for her amazing Hutchmoot sessions) shared a lovingly curated combination of her own words, two letters from former prisoners of the American slavery system, and her performance of the song “Oh, Freedom.” This story of a freedom “prayed for, hoped for, cried for, moaned for, even fought for” carried an abiding resonance that we wanted to extend to our readership this year, as well. We encourage you to take in these words and melodies slowly and attentively.]

5&1, Part 19: Rosy-Fingered Dawn (Heliophiles of the World Unite!)

By Mark Meynell

For years as an inveterate night-owl, the dawn has been one of those natural phenomena I mostly appreciate in the hypothetical rather than in experience. But as middle-age has set in, I have found myself waking earlier and unintentionally glimpsing its glories with greater frequency. It’s hard not to be moved, especially if, like the Psalmist’s watchmen, one has found oneself longing for the end of night (Ps 130:5-6). It never palls. No wonder then that composers have been stirred by the first flickers of the sun’s ‘rosy-fingered’ rays (to quote Homer) to capture the ineffable in the audible.

New Online Course: Writing with Jeeves & Wooster

By Jonathan Rogers

For this installment of the “Writing with…” series, we will do some light summer reading. P. G. Wodehouse’s Right Ho, Jeeves is widely considered to be the best and most representative of his Jeeves and Wooster books. Our narrator is the lovably dunderheaded, overprivileged, never-employed Bertie Wooster. His good-hearted but bumbling attempts to solve his friends’ and relatives’ problems (not to mention his own) always make matters worse, until his exceedingly capable valet Jeeves wades in and puts everything to rights.
