254/365 NYC 911 by Dan Bern

Creative people everywhere used their craft to cope with the horrors of September 11, 2001, Dan Bern among them. He wrote NYC 911 a few days later and I heard him play it not long after that. It’s not on any released album, but is on several bootlegs I own.

I listen to it once a year on the anniversary of the tragedy.

  1. I never heard this before. Being in Kansas that day, so far from NYC and DC, I was struck by the utter silence as highways emptied, and the image of curling contrails left as all other planes landed and stayed on the ground.
