Colette

“Colette has won the Academy Award in the category of best documentary short…90-year-old Colette Marin-Catherine confronts her past by visiting the German concentration camp Mittelbau-Dora where her brother was killed. As a young girl, she fought Hitler’s Nazis as a member of the French Resistance. For 74 years, she has refused to step foot in Germany, but that changes when a young history student named Lucie enters her life. Prepared to re-open old wounds and revisit the terrors of that time, Marin-Catherine offers important lessons for us all.”

–Anthony Giacchino, “Collette.” The Guardian. November 2020.

The Kozmigroov Konnection (The Cosmic Jazz Groove Connection)

“Kozmigroov is a transgressive improvisational music which combines elements of psychedelia, spirituality, jazz, rock, soul, funk, and African, Latin, Brazillian, Indian and Asian influences culminating into an all encompassing cosmic groove. At its most accomplished, Kozmigroov is both expansive and highly rhythmic, and simultaneously finds connections with the mind, soul and body. (full definition)

Doug Watson created the first Kozmigroov Index in 1997 as a map through a minefield of kozmigroov recordings which range from the drop-dead brilliant to the outrageously bad. The Index moved here (freeform.org) in 2003, and was renamed The Kozmigroov Konnection. The Konnection has grown over the years with help and input from various people within the kozmic community, and continues to grow with contributions from people like you!

The Kozmigroov Konnection

For some future moment when you are thinking want to listen to something a little different, a little funky, etc. The Kozmigroov “A” list and some searching of YouTube is probably not a bad way to go.
