The Blues Aesthetic. What is it? It's something in your bones, like calcium. Sometimes you need a microscope to identify it. Sometimes you just know it, because they're your bones and they resonate.
Hope that youngster's doing well. He showed a lot of promise, for sure. Tell him from me that if he has a phone, he has a metronome. :) I grew up listening to Clark Terry. If you watched the Tonight Show Band, so did you.
People could stand to read some Albert Murray, including me. I am glorying in the return of the Fifth Quarter throughout the HBCU Band world. I am forever amazed at how these schools hand out these postgame performances like giant slices of dessert for free. God Bless America.
Thank you for the introduction to Christone Kingfish Ingram. I'm listening to the songs on his website as I write. Never heard of Clark Terry either.
I am invisible understand, simply because people refuse to see me.
I put Alternate Blues on my to-get list. Thank you for the tip. I just got Miles Davis's Kind of Blue a week or so back.
