California Poet Laureate

Pretty cool interview and DJ visit at NPR with Juan Felipe Herrera.  The first tune he shares is "Incident at Neshabur" off of Santana's classic Abraxas.  I used to pull this album out of my parents' vinyl collection and spin it on the turn table round 'n round.  The beautiful "Samba Pa Ti" was my parents wedding song.  We used the tune in a beautiful slide show last year to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary.  Gotta admit, I got choked up.  I got choked up, I gotta admit.
