How nice is it when a towering kind of talent decides he/she rather not loom large over those around them? How refreshing the case when those who churn the music we set our lives to decide a pillar is no place to be, favoring eye to eye contact for a heart to heart reaction? Nothing abstract, nothing too mystifying, nothing that hints at any kind of celebrity. Just a musician and their audience, on equal footing. We're not saying it doesn't happen in this business. We're just saying that when it's real, when it's honest, when it's about a love for great music, it only reinforces why it is we do what we do.

Which might explain the incredible amounts of enthusiasm whipping 'round Baeble HQ these days for our latest video session from Washington Square Park. When we invited Cory Chisel and Adriel Harris to the park for an early morning session last month, both arrived fresh off a rather late night out and about in this, our fair and fabled metropolis. Though most certainly feeling the effects of the early call, Cory and Adriel graciously dusted off any lasting grogginess, taking our production crew, those lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time, and you through a sensational, three song set. Set in the shadows of WSP's iconic marble arch, this video of the duo's performance of a set of songs from their stunning new disc Death Won't Send a Letter (Black Seal) is a stirring documentation of how sometimes the bare essentials are the only essentials artists of this caliber need. - David Pitz
