Tunes For The Troops
 



 
**Artist Showcase**
Jamiroquai are a British acid jazz band formed in 1992. Fronted by lead singer Jay Kay, Jamiroquai were initially the most prominent component in the early-1990s London-based acid jazz movement, alongside groups such as Incognito, the James Taylor Quartet, and the Brand New Heavies. Subsequent albums have explored other musical directions such as pop, rock and electronica. Their best known track is "Virtual Insanity", which won four awards at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards. Jamiroquai have sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and won a Grammy Award in 1998.

Belonging

August 10, 2013

My dad was full of stories about his hometown. So you can imagine how excited I was as a child when he took our family there every summer. We fished the St. Joseph River together and visited his boyhood farm where all of his stories came to life. Although that place was never really my home, whenever I visit that town—now with grown children and grandchildren of my own—it fills me with a nostalgic sense of belonging.

Jesus talked with His disciples about His home in heaven, which He left to come and live among us. What a joy it must have been for Him to tell His disciples, “In my Father’s house are many mansions . . . . I go to prepare a place for you, . . . that where I am, there you may be also” (John 14:2-3). No doubt Jesus, “who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross” (Heb. 12:2), was looking forward to returning to His heavenly home and taking His Father’s sons and daughters there to be with Him.

The thought of Jesus taking us to His Father’s home fills us with great anticipation and compels us to tell others the good news about the Son who came to rescue us from this fallen place.

Now I belong to Jesus;
Jesus belongs to me—
Not for the years of time alone,
But for eternity. —Clayton
Only Jesus can fill us with a sense of belonging like we’ve never known before.

Read: John 14:1-11

In my Father’s house are many mansions . . . . I go to prepare a place for you. —John 14:2
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 77-78; Romans 10

Welcome To All Who Enter This Canteen, To Our Serving Military, To Our Veterans, To All Military Families, To Our FRiends and To Our Allies!



Missing Man Setting

"The Empty Chair"

By Captain Carroll "Lex" Lefon, USN (RET), on December 21st, 2004

"In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture. The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

AS YOU REMEMBER.

The small, round table is covered with a gold linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is gold symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

WE SHOULD REMEMBER."

Many Thanks To Alfa6 For Finding Capt. Lefon's Chronicle Of "The Empty Chair."

Another fast commute on the way home - just over 40 minutes. Very muggy here all day. Walking out the door at 6:30 this morning was like walking into a steam bath. More of the same expected over the weekend.

The Star Spangled Banner – Verse Four
(Click)


Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Let’s look at what was happening in 1794, the year that Lou Beethoven wrote his Opus 2 sonatas for piano.

In America, Washington was in his second term, and his first term cabinet of all-stars had been replaced by a cabinet of political hacks because the all-stars couldn’t get along. (Washington would have been justified had he gone to the stable, gotten a horsewhip and applied it liberally to the backsides of both Jefferson and Hamilton.)

In France, the Terror was in full swing, and a convent of nuns in Compiegne had been sent to the guillotine because they might have been praying for the soul of the late king.

In Austria and the German city-states, everyone was watching France with trepidation in case the poison of the French Revolution began flowing eastward.

In Vienna, Haydn was 62, Mozart had been dead for 3 years, and Beethoven was 24.

The third sonata of the Opus 2 is the Piano Sonata in C, Op. 2/3. Like its two siblings, it’s in four movements with a dance movement in third position. The first movement is marked 4/4, allegro con brio. Mozart only used this marking once, but Beethoven was fond of employing it. The Italian word “brio” has worked its way into English somewhat, so the best translation would be “quick with enthusiasm”. This is not intended to be a contemplative movement; the joy just leaps off the page,
At 1:14, you expect Lou to turn to the dominant key, G Major, for the second subject, but he pulls off a surprise by turning to G minor first. This transitional passage sounds a lot like Mozart, and at 1:50 Beethoven settles in for the second subject in G Major.
At 3:12 he repeats the exposition.
At 6:00 Lou begins his short development by going through a good many minor keys before going through some major keys.
At 7:22, he recaps, and at 8:00 he states his transitional passage in C minor so as to get to C Major for the second subject.
At 9:47, he shocks with an A-flat chord to begin a coda, a cadenza, and finally he finishes with the first subject and a bravura end.

The second movement is marked adagio, “at rest”, and is in 2/4 and E Major. This is one of Beethoven’s conversations with God, a contemplative movement that turns quickly to E minor to become a lament. Those high notes are crossovers played by the left hand. At 15:47 he returns to the opening theme in E Major. But at 16:55, Lou turns to C Major before working his way back to the central panel, but this time resolved sweetly in E Major by restating the first theme.

The third movement is a scherzo marked simply allegro in the traditional 3/4 time and C Major. Beethoven uses counterpoint to play with his subjects, something Schubert was to copy in one of his late sonatas.
At 21:47 his “trio”, or middle section, switches to A minor.
At 22:36, he returns to his scherzo material without repeats.
But at 23:09, he abruptly shifts to a coda in A minor that cleverly slips into C Major for the end.

The finale is marked allegro assai, “very fast”, in C Major and 6/8. The right hand plays block chords that had me stumped for fingering until Adam Neiman, piano virtuoso and Ayn Rand fan, told me, “Use the same fingers all the way up and play it with the wrist.” Once I did that, I had it licked. This is a rondo movement where that first subject with the block chords will show up a lot to hold the movement together.
At 25:15, Lou switches to F Major for a passage marked dolce,”sweetly”. Fans of Schubert will note the resemblance to the finale of his E-flat Piano Trio which would come 33 years later. (It wasn’t until Schubert came to terms with Beethoven’s music that he was able to write the glorious works of his last three years.)
At 26:33 the block chord subject returns.
But at 28:31, he switches to A Major and fools you into thinking he is going to squeeze a quiet ending out of it. Not to worry! Lou kicks it into overdrive in the last bars.

This video shows the great Chilean pianist Claudio Arrau (1903-91) at the peak of his form. I had the privilege of seeing him perform In Pasadena back in the Seventies.
