Under An August Moon Shining above …

Under An August Moon Shining above …

“Under stars chilled by the winter,
Under an August moon shining above,
You’d be so nice, you’d be Paradise
To come home to and love.”
(You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To, by Cole Porter, our favorite version sung by Ella Fitzgerald)

“What plant we in this apple-tree!
Fruits that shall swell in sunny June,
And redden in the August noon, 
And drop, when gentle airs come by …” (The Planting of the Apple Tree, William Cullen Bryant)

 Hello Friends and Family,

We hope you will come out on the town this Saturday, August 6, to The Back Room in Berkeley. It’s a beautiful new listening room with a grand piano and great sound! Musician extraordinaire Karl Hartmann will accompany us on bass (see pic fr. street fair). We’ll share the evening of original jazz, blues and rock with WoodBarry, an Americana Rock/Country group featuring Woody Trevorrow and Barry Silverblatt from the legendary Bay Area band Hearts on Fire. Fellow "Hearts" and Houston/Jones veteran, guitarist Glenn Houston, along with Nancy Hall from the Curios, will be joining them onstage.
As Barry said, “forget politics (ugh!!) for a night and find your groove!”

We were pleased that Women of Substance Radio & Podcast has accepted our recording of A Satisfied Mind. It’s a song Chappell had been performing for many years when we decided to add it to our original song lineup on our CD, Stone and Fire.
An on-line DJ from South Carolina, Uncle Shag, has played it and he tweeted his review saying he considered our version to be THE version.A Satisfied Mind will be featured on the “We've Got It Covered” series in late August. We’ll post the details when they become available.

Chappell will be opening for Portland Oregon songwriter, Carl Solomon, at The Black Pug Café, 1303 High Street, Alameda, CA, a new venue in the charming Victorian that was previously the High Street Café.
