What better way to start the year than with the music of Sly Stone?

Steven Bernstein’s Millennial Territory Orchestra (Steven Bernstein, trumpet; John Medeski, organ, et al.), live, Paris, 2011

“Stand” (feat. Sandra St. Victor, vocals)


“Everyday People” (feat. Eric Mingus, vocals)


Still, after four decades, this album remains on my desert-island list.
