Charlie Says....

Charle Parker & Miles Davis - A Night In Tunisia

Yes, we're going to talk about the solo. It's been stuck on a pin like a butterfly and gathering dust for a long long time, every detail scrutinised, analysed, plagiarised, and still all you can say when you hear it is "JESUS! What is he doing?"

A man's life, be it sordid, saintly, or simply ordinary is mere detail in comparison to his creative life. Only through that sanctified double of the everyday can he approach the angels and demons that are the true heights and depths of what we are.

And here we approach Heaven. This is the sassy flash of an angels wing telling you everything will be ok if you just shut up and let go, let go...
