Dream 1

This dream possibly took place during the evening or night or a dark day outside in a small front yard of a house, I was there, so maybe this was a fictional version of my parent’s house; but I can not remember.

Brittany Davis: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

Brittany Davis: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

What Is It?

The YouTube video Brittany Davis: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert by the YouTube channel NPR Music.

Here is the description for this video:

The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music’s Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It’s the same spirit — stripped-down sets, an intimate setting — just a different space.

Stephen Thompson | April 13, 2022
It’s a testament to Brittany Davis that this Tiny Desk home show feels like a true live concert — one with real live energy, as if it’s playing out in front of a massive crowd you can’t quite see or hear. It’s hard to replicate the spirit of the Tiny Desk outside of the NPR offices: You don’t get the visual sense of place, you don’t get NPR engineers managing the sound mix onsite, and you don’t get the exchange of energy between musicians and audience members who are often excitedly discovering your music for the first time. Still, this set swims in that much-missed alchemy where everyone in a given room is carried forward by the same sounds.

A blind, Black, nonbinary musician from Seattle, Davis presides over a backing band that features six hard-hitting women. Together, they fuse rock, soul, hip-hop, pop and R&B in four songs — all drawn from Davis’ debut EP, I Choose to Live — that teem with insights about identity, injustice, authenticity, motivation and power. Each song in this set moves at a different pace, from the righteous hip-hop fury of “I Choose to Live” to the plaintive slow burn of “Loud Loud World.” But all four convey a clear sense of purpose.

Davis is signed to Loosegroove Records, the hometown label co-founded by Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard, and Gossard has already figured prominently in Davis’ career: The two share a supergroup called Painted Shield, which also features folksinger Mason Jennings and drummer Matt Chamberlain. If this set is any indication, Davis may well become the biggest name of them all.

Patti LaBelle: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

Patti LaBelle: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

What Is It?

The YouTube video Patti LaBelle: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert by the YouTube channel NPR Music.

Here is the description for this video:

NPR Music’s Tiny Desk series will celebrate Black History Month with Tiny Desk (home) concerts featuring legends in the world of R&B, jazz, gospel, and hip-hop. Each artist in this legacy lineup has helped to define Black music as we know it and will be performing a Tiny Desk concert for the first time.

Bobby Carter | February 23, 2022
The first song in Patti LaBelle’s Tiny Desk (home) concert sets the tone and quickly sums up the entire 15-minute performance. “Something Special (Is Gonna Happen Tonight)” from her 1986 album Winner In You is a highlight from one of many chapters in her fabulous career. A backstage corner of a concert hall in Austin, Texas, is transformed into Patti’s world, furnished with a throne, flowers and trunks full of shoes. Options are a must, given a knack for kicking off her shoes during shows. The entire band managed to fit onto the set: thirteen people, including fierce background vocals, keys, horns and more, to recreate some of the best from the Godmother of Soul.

LaBelle and company go straight into hits mode after the first number. “Love, Need and Want You” is delivered with the same vibrancy as the 1983 original, with a wink to another hit, “Dilemma,” by Nelly, who sampled it 19 years later. The ballads continue with “If Only You Knew.” She closes with the anthem “Lady Marmalade,” which was also revived in the early 2000s by Christina Aguilera, Mya, Pink and Lil’ Kim.

Ms. Patti had already made Black History with Cindy Birdsong, Sara Dash and Nona Hendryx as the powerhouse group Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles (later Labelle). After the group disbanded, she forged through on her own as a pioneer in music, style and entrepreneurship. Sixty years and counting. Whether big stage or Tiny Desk, the standard-bearing icon continues to exude elegance and grace as a performer.
