Despite many emails from various friend and acquaintances baiting me on the subject of Treme, I’m sticking with my plan to avoid forming — or at least expressing — any opinion until I’ve seen four episodes. TV shows take time. Meanwhile, then, this news.
I got a note over the weekend from Peter Mills, a past correspondent on the subject of “SJI.” Turns out Mr. Mills has just published a book called Hymns To The Silence about the music of Van Morrison, which he tells me includes “a little case study of his version of the song.” I’ll be picking this up soon — the chapter in which Morrison’s “SJI” is discussed is titled “Listening to the Lion.”
Sounds very cool!
