Let All Mortal Flesh
My solo track from James Cocherham's cd BASIC/Cockerham: Nobody Like Jesus. James is a gifted composer arranger. Looking for a great song to record he has many contemporary gospel pieces available even Gospel rap. He's all about the WORD. Many use this song during the advent season. Plans are being made to create a one-woman show with Arietha Lockhart singing the spiritual arrangements of Mr. Cockerham.

Laughing Monkeys of Gravity
By Curtis Bryant. THE LAUGHING MONKEYS OF GRAVITY is a four-part song cycle based on a lyric meditation on comedy and loneliness; it is the title poem in a volume by poet Stephen Bluestone. The main characters in the meditation are movie comedians Laughing Monkeys - book cover from an earlier era: Laurel and Hardy, Charlie Chaplin, the Three Stooges, Buster Keaton, Lou Costello, Harold Lloyd, and others. In their moments of loneliness, these comedians salvage the dignity of the human spirit and affirm the will to endure. He tailored the vocal writing to the extroadinary voice of soprano Arietha Lockhart who premiered the set on an all-Bryant/Bluestone concert in 2003 at Fickling Hall on the Mercer University campus. Lockhart was joined by Kelly Via, flute; Monty Cole, clarinet & sax; Giselle Hillyer, violin; Barbara Altman, cello; Brian Nozny, percussion and Roger McVey, piano.
