Before there was the Kentucky Derby, before the Belmont or Preakness Stakes, or Off–Track Betting, there were…

Horse. And Toad.

Because the exacta is nothing compared to the Princess’ hand in marriage, right?

"CRIC?!"

See you in Central Park tomorrow, 2nd June.

"Horse and Toad" is from the book The Magic Orange Tree and Other Haitian Folktales (Random House–Schocken Books, New York, 1978, reprinted 1997).

The second of four Haitian stories told by Diane Wolkstein in Central Park (see the previous post).

In a nutshell: If you rush into marriage, could this happen to you?

Finally, after too long a pause, the Just One Story… video upgrading continues.

Here’s Diane Wolkstein, joined by drummer Oneza LaFontant, with her signature telling of the Haitian tale about “The Magic Orange Tree” (from the classic book of the same title).

This is the first episode of the show to be produced in New York’s Central Park, and the first of four stories recorded on June 5, 2010.

Make sure to learn the song that goes with the story, so that you’re in the proper mood.

The last of the upscaled Just One Story… episodes is all yours now to enjoy.

Diane Wolkstein is seen here with a poignant story from her collection The Magic Orange Tree and Other Haitian Folktales (1978). The most amazing thing about this story is the fourth — and intentionally forgotten — daughter’s capacity to forgive her mother for the injustice done to her as a child.

This performance was recorded at the Mother’s Day Benefit for Haiti (Scandinavia House, New York City, Sunday 9 May 2010) using an older Samsung miniDV videotape camcorder. It’s the last of the old standard definition episodes we did before we finally moved up to a 720p HD camera.

Look for more Haitian goodness in April. But for now… "Cric?"

Here’s another Just One Story… oldie but goodie, newly remastered for 720p HD. Everybody comfy?

In May of 2010, I had the honor of recording Dianne R. Carr telling her original children’s tale “Dragon Days and Rabbit Ways” (1973), which she describes as “a story about a dragon who finds what no flaming fury has ever revealed — his heart and his imagination.” (This episode was recorded al fresco at the Dairy inside New York City’s Central Park, so please forgive the banging of tables, dishes, and the like.) No dragons, rabbits, or humans were harmed during the taping.

Yes, it’s true… We look best on an Android tablet (here the Acer Iconia Tab A100) running at least Android 3.0 (Honeycomb).

Well, I do declare!

Not long after the remastered Episode 1 of Just One Story… went live, I received a few notes of concern about, among other things, the Statutory Declaration that begins almost every program we produce.

One visitor asked if the wording seemed a mite “menacing,” even though it wasn’t intended that way. The main concern (in the second card) was that musicians and other artistes featured in our shows be supported by our viewers.

That said, the Declaration is getting a more gentle, viewer-friendly rewrite. It will be more to the point and shorter as well. 

And it will now open each and every one of our shows, as a production practice.

You’ll start noticing the changes as the videos are gradually replaced (the links and embed codes will or should stay the same).

Thank you for being responsive and for your compassion and patience.
