Charlie M.

i love writing to music. it takes the edge away. it's my only solace to such a solitary activity. i spend a lot of my time with different folks from John and Miles to Chaka and Minnie. Erykah and Davina are there too. so are Andre and Ghostface and Madlib and Tribe. lately though, i've been spending most of my time with Charlie. Mr. Charles Mingus, that is.

i'm in love with Mr. Mingus' music. i've been for a while. and i always come back to him. from bebop to hardbop to postbop, i love every sound and style he's messed with. he was indeed a beautiful artist.

and an inspiring one to write to.

Charlie Mingus. sigh.

dara! i love that woman. she is so incredibly talented. she was just in town the other week for her first performance out here, and also it was her comeback after a long while of not making music. needless to say i wanted to go so bad. then due to circumstances beyond my control, i had to miss the show. i was SO SAD. yup. i missed out big.

I love writing as jazz plays as well. I really like Dexter Gordon and I love John Coltrane's A Love Supreme. If you ever get a chance there is a great U.K. online radio station called jazzfm, I listen to it a lot when writing. Here's the link; www.jazzfm.com/discover_jazzfm.asp

Thanks for you blog, I love it!
