Happy New Year Everyone! Before disappearing into the black hole of unproductivity known as 'the holidays' I had a nice time going to Joe's Pub to see my friends the Sweet Divines. Their special guest was soul legend Howard Tate whose best work was recorded on Verve with Jerry Ragovoy in the 1960's.
