SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- On Sunday, Feb.12 at 1:00 p.m., the Scotch Plains Public Library will present a Lincoln Center screening of Cassandra Wilson and The Campbell Brothers: A Sacred Steel Love Supreme. This concert was performed and recorded at the Damrosch Park Bandshell on Aug. 8, 2015.

Cassandra Wilson performed one of the leading roles in Wynton Marsalis’ “Blood on the Fields,” the first jazz work to receive a Pulitzer Prize. Her 1992 landmark album Blue Light ‘Til Dawn paved the way for a new generation of jazz singers through repertoire that challenged American Songbook standards.This concert celebrated the 20th anniversary of that album and includes emotionally rich interpretations of blues, folk, and country songs—as well as standards and originals.

The Campbell Brothers are torchbearers of sacred steel guitar.  Their world premiere performance of John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme” revealed the full gospel affinities and spiritual transcendence of Coltrane’s masterwork in honor of its 50th anniversary.

And in the beginning, G‑d was homeless, and so G‑d asked His people to set Him up with some digs. Where does it say that? Well, nowhere, actually. But it does say that G‑d instructed Moses to tell the people, “They shall make for Me a Sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.”

Now the question is, was G‑d really homeless? ...
