Viewing: Listening - View all posts


Today I was able to re-connect with several clients and friends, learn Art Farmer's solo on "The Squirrel," check out Donny McCaslin's set @jazzbaltica, study a new twist on a favorite business practice, admire some beautiful photos, peruse the amazing reading list of @Art_Garfunkel, listen to a cool BBC interview with @Jimmy Cobb, read @JasonDCrane's latest poem, and watch a classic Star Trek episode -- all without leaving my solitary bunker in the lonesome desert. Thanks, Internet!


"It is the very act of concentrating on writing music which makes it
difficult to do, since ideas normally arise when one is not focused
but when one is open in some way."
—Brian Eno

"Music should go right through you, leave some of itself
inside you, and take some of you with it when it leaves."
—Henry Threadgill

"The jukebox just played 'I'd like to settle down but they won't let me.'
Merle Haggard. It's always a bit like that. People don't want you
to be satisfied if you're a musician."
—Tom Waits
