From Janis: I heard about Corey King through a mutual friend, went to his website, took a look at his work, and fell in love with Ibaraki (from his album Lashes). Then I discovered he was a trombonist, and had visions of a multi-instrumental version of BTWC featuring trombone. Alas, he was in the midst of moving from NYC to Seattle. Most of his instruments, he explained, were “in a pod”, slowly making their way west, and they’d be in transit for a while. He asked if I'd be okay with a guitar/vocal, and I said heck yeah! Anyone who's toured full time with Esperanza Spalding and Iggy Pop has way enough range for me. This thoughtful, quiet version speaks volumes. 


Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come


Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come



Oh, better times will come
