Across 110th Street

Bobby Womack.
Last night at a party someone told a good story well. They had the whole room absolutely, solidly captivated. Edge of your seat kind of thing. And it was told without ego.

I think I'd almost forgotten how great it was to encounter that kind of great storytelling. Is it a dying art, or have great storytellers always been rare?

Criterion has released Simon of the Desert.
