My yearly ode to you, dear friends.

Happy New Year.

My annual ode to you, my online friends. Happiest, healthiest and most prosperous of New Year’s to you, your family and YOUR circle of friends.

Thanks as always for being here.

So my dear, dear friend Laura Kaye long ago mentioned Nikka Costa, and how much she loved her.  (Nikka’s got a voice wayyy beyond her years… an old-soul funktress.)

So when my FB friend Alisa B Anderson posted a link to an awesome new Nikka track a few days ago… I took notice. I heard it once – just once – and this came into my head.  So I had to make it – I couldn’t help it.

So here – with all due reverence…

p.s. – if Mizz Costa would care to give up a high-res copy of the audio, I’d be willing to re-create it in better fidelity. I could only do it with MP3.
