cookin with art blakey

22 Jan

follow me into a solo with
abdullah ibn buhaina
(lowercase and unknown to many)
we’ll catch miles smilin
max roach roachin
sid catlett swingin
chick webb cookin
follow me to pittsburgh
to mama afrikkaa
to ‘birdland’
follow the messengers
blend up east and west
with water jugs luggage spoons tin cans buckets
(i’m gonna stay with the youngsters
when these get too old
i’m a get some new ones)
follow me into the mouth of
the young lions

    Ah, I like that, Alex, love the rhythms and inflections.

    This SWINGS, man!

    Well done (as always)…
