Dion sings the blues
This interview with Dion DiMucci, entitled 'The Wanderer' Has Got the Blues, aired this morning on NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday and just cannot be missed. Dion is a devout believer, a Catholic, a man whose art is prayer. He encountered Jesus in a moment of crisis in his life, practiced as a Protestant for many years, but eventually returned to the Church in the parish in which he was raised. I know that Son of Skip James is my next album purchase.
The quote of the day from Dion in this interview:
"My definition of the blues is the naked cry of the human heart longing to be in union with God."
