Louis Jordan

I learned about Louis Jordan when I worked as a cook for a Tex-Mex resaurant in Juneau, AK in the earl 90’s.  The Telephone Room has a nice post about Jordan here complete with a video of the Muppets covering one of his songs. Regina Hackett linked to Louis Jordan’s Is You Is or Is You Ain’t (My Baby) in her post about my show at The Telephone Room . The show ends November 30th.

Below, another on of my Louis Jordan favorites.



There and Back Again

Or how Rebecca and I walked to the Henry Art Gallery and back. Whew. Almost  8 miles.

The Henry had the goods, per usual. Their website here. We caught the last day of Joe Park and Jennifer Zwick’s sweet installation at The Gift Shop.  That’s when you walk in the front door, then you get Eirik Johnson: Sawdust Mountain, Polaroids: Mapplethorpe – and that’s just upstairs. Downstairs is anchored by Vortexhibition Polyphonica. There’s more. Go see.

On the way back we caught the last day of Claire Cowie’s show at Gage Academy.  Glad we went and so was Regina Hackett . Thanks to Joey Veltkamp for the reminder.

Anywho. Pics from our walk.


Light poles.

Planter on the west side of I-5 in Eastlake.

Check out this houseboat!

Who painted the doorway? Dale?

Sailboat out from under the University Bridge.

Now for the way back…

The Montlake cut looking West.

Taking a path under 520 to the Montlake Playfield.

After we emerge, so pretty.

Yep, right beside 520.

Wall berries.

That’s it. Too exhausted to take anymore pics.
