The music keeps me alive
Taking me to far away places of the mind to the unheard of galaxies of the soul
teaching me and reaching me as no other medium to laugh and to be amazed and to love
life like Mr. Laws says, “love will find away,” have you heard, or like Grover says, “Mister Magic.”
And indeed it is magic, or should I say magical, or should I say magical and mystical and mind blowing
to the riffs and tunes of Herbie ripping off Chameleon, sending the mind to another place and another time and, “Listen Here” says Eddie Harris cause I am coming at you making my horn scream, and Mr. Blacknus himself. Rashann Roland Kirk from the grave still holding that note so long that I am out breath on the Old Rugged
Cross cause we got all kinda crosses to bear but Horace Silver says this is a “Song for My Father and all is well, and don’t forget the ride on the “A Train cause it’s still running strong and was rode by so many. The music is Jazz and from it was born the creative spirit of so many, to move on, to build and to give of themselves the spirit of the universe that creates the melody that we so love that we live by and enjoy…All That Jazz
Thanks Bro. Good Blog you started there. Lots of people contest who is legit with Jazz and who is not. I think the genre is big enough for all kinds and flavors, classical to contemporary, way out and smooth. Thanks for the comment on "Lost Without U" The guitar player, Brad Catron is on this site also...
Thanks for the compliment, very sweet of you! I have not heard that project by Roland, I will make sure to take a listen. I appreciate your being here with us and your love of the greatest art form there is JAZZ!! (...and for wearing a shirt)!!! :-)
