One thought on “‘Three Songs, Three Singers, Three Nations’ Google Talk (06/03/16)

  1. A very rewarding talk that rescues Geeshie Wiley,and the $40 bill from oblivion. The unearthly aura of Geeshie W’s music opens untapped harmonic resources for musicians today. There’s no mode that has a I chord as Major and a IV chord as minor-her music opens up the possibilities of this unused combination-(even if the I slips in and out of the Major)- G.M has in effect re-incarnated a musical explorer.G.Wiley’s variation may have been accidental,or considered a “mistake” at the time ,but G.M. has brilliantly intuited its musical,and not only its cultural and historical value.
