Art Garfunkel has been fine tuning his instrument since he was a small child, singing into a wire recorder he received from his father. He has since made a lasting mark on the music world as both a solo artist, and half of the extraordinary duo Simon & Garfunkel.

One night while clicking through hundreds of channels of crap, I unclenched the remote to stare at faded footage from a 34-year-old concert in New York City, as the song, "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard" lulled me back to a Saturday in September when Simon & Garfunkel performed a free concert on the great lawn in Central Park.

Reuben, you've built part of your story by engineering for acts like Basement Jaxx, Courtney Barnett and even The London Symphony Orchestra. Where does performing and recording as an artist yourself fit into your bigger creative picture?

On a humid Martha's Vineyard night, I drove across the street to our Performing Arts Center to see Art Garfunkel's concert. What I could not know is that short journey that I made would lead me into Mr. Garfunkel's profound encounter with what propels him into this world.

Regardless, Simon & Garfunkel's The Complete Albums Collection is an absolute essential. Each of these albums -- even the folk-drenched Wednesday Morning, 3am -- paint a picture of their era and suggest what we've lost spiritually and intellectually since then.

First Nighter": A Feeble "Fable," A Lively "So, This Then is Life"

When Chandra (Dawn-Lyen Gardner) slips happily through an upstage door to smell the trellis roses at the start of A Fable, David Van Asselt's new play at the Cherry Lane, it's the extremely naïve theater-goer who won't immediately guess that the young girl's innocent joy isn't going to last much longer.

Though the masses might only remember the late Donny Hathaway as Roberta Flack's soulful partner on "The Closer I Get To You," "You've Got A Friend" and "Where Is The Love," the box set Never My Love: The Anthology makes the case that this previous Gospel singer also was one of the great voices of R&B.

"I think now is a great time to go back and take another look at Harry, in light of what we know about all the drug use and all the crazy stuff that we were all into and that he seemed to gravitate towards. He reveled in offending people, to be honest with you. It didn't bother him too much."

I always called you Arthur. Remember? We dated for 11 wonderful months (at least I thought they were wonderful) starting in June of 1968. I had red hair and you called me "Tater" because I was about half your size and loved Tater Tots even though you referred to them as "frozen poison."
