Esquizito's Blog – September 2009 Archive (5)

September 29th, 2009

“A jazz musician who has taken the spotlight on the world.”



Dear Reader, we return to a “very interesting subject” which Mr. Barker brought to the Xavier students of a generation ago. The case of Hamaas Khaalis, a Bebop drummer turned “revolutionst,” and the very true story of the Hanafi Siege which took place in Washington D.C. in 1977. I myself was 13 years old when the three-day stand-off occurred, and was unaware of it until I encountered Danny's cassette archives. I'll admit,… Continue

Sunday is a highly significant day of the week in New Orleans' living. Throughout each calendar year there is no season as potent in its swagger than that of the New Orleans Labor Day week-end. It has been told of, and reported but... truthfully, you must experience it.

There is an aspect of New Orleans life which is not often spoken of: The New Orleans people are a society “with a great tolerance.”

I suppose that I am chastened, and humbled to agree. We still have it today – almost two generations down the road from Mr. Barker's days. This point of allowance that African-Americans seem to arrive at, in each generation (Danny and I prefer,… Continue
