March 23 — GNOSSIENNE NO. 3, Erik Satie (composed 1889)

imageDavid Johansen’s midday Sunday program on Sirius XM continues to impress and inspire me. The guy’s taste and knowledge of music is vast — opera, jazz, jug bands, show tunes, Cajun music, street punk, hillbilly, torch songs.

Today, he played at least a half dozen compositions from the 19th century pianist, composer and eccentric, Erik Satie. This one caught my ear and accompanied me for much of the afternoon.
