Happy Thanksgiving

One of the non-music blogs we read on a regular basis reminded us that guitar virtuoso Michael Hedges died 12 years ago in a tragic car accident on Thanksgiving weekend.

Commonly referred to at first as "the Eddie Van Halen of the acoustic guitar", Hedges was not only an immensely talented instrumentalist but also a gifted composer who quickly made a name for himself and was held in high regard during the decade-plus we was in the public eye.

As a tribute to him, we'd like to share with you one of our favorites,
"Rickover's Dream" from the landmark album Aerial Boundaries [Windham Hill-1984], performed live at New York City's Bottom Line in 1990. Happy Thanksgiving.
