人が怖くて冬のブランコ漕ぎにゆく   叶 万里子

hito ga kowakute fuyu no buranko kogini yuku

I am afraid of people

And I go out to push

a winter swing

Johnny Otis’s Obituary / NYT

Johnny Otis,  the man who discovered Etta James, as well as Big Mama Thornton and “Little Esther” Phillips, died three days before Etta James, the very same man she called her “guru”.  The New York Times said that Otis “. . . played an important role in creating a new sound for a new audience of young urban blacks. Within a few years it would form the foundation of rock ’n’ roll.” A huge thanks to Sheryl Webster for bringing this to my attention and teaching me more about the roots of popular music. ~ DF
