When Danny O’Keefe was starting out in the music business in the late 1960’s, he fell asleep one evening while working on a song. As he awakened, he was given the words, “Looking Glass in Oregon one night had a dream, of soldiers slowly riding in a solemn endless stream.” The words came clearly to Danny, but he didn’t know who Looking Glass was. When he told his friends about the dream, he learned that Looking Glass was a late Warrior Chief of the Nez Perce People, an Indigenous People of the Pacific Northwest.
Now, Danny is here to share his latest album called, “Looking Glass and the Dreamers.” The project has been a culmination of a lifetime of learning from the Nez Perce.
Joel Rafael has a conversation with Danny O’Keefe about how Looking Glass and the Dreamers was made, and three tracks are played from the album.
