SE Vol 94 – Miles

Singing in church choirs & school plays, somehow music was always around. Penned a paper on the Autobiography of Miles Davis and the most memorable part of the read was how Miles would play the trumpet with his back turned to the audience. “Kind of Blue” is a playlist I frequently enjoy.

For now, you can find thousands of sites on his work and influence. Do enjoy the links and pics below.

Quotes on Miles

*This post is in honour of Miles who entered my world thirteen yrs ago today.


*The transition date of Miles Davis is also the transition date of a woman who will forever be a fabric in my life-quilt and the day I joined my life-partner almost twenty yrs ago in “keeping it moving”.

Soul Excursion Vol 39 – Jazz

TALKING ALL THAT JAZZ                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  4 voices @ the end of this post*

Had many a flashbacks and must revise my log as such. My grandparents introduced to me to their jazz through personal stories, songs we’d hear on the car radio (no music played in the house) and movies.  They grew up in the Pittsburgh area during the time of the ‘great depression’. They spoke of dance gatherings, a vivid line in a room, catching a jazz great in town on tour, favorite dance steps and so much more.  Most of their impression on me is from how they expressed those experiences with admiration and honor, or in words not spoken.

Thank you for joining me in recalling my intro to jazz (when I wanted to hear the music) (one feels compelled to label music – (sigh)…fascination we have with labels). Probably around the late 80’s, during a youth gathering in a mentor’s home, as a teen, was an indirect introduction to Jazz (Many thanks Ms. Benita!). Selfishly, I interrupted the meeting many times to inquire and learn more about what sounds were emanating from the record player and suffice it to say we ended up changing various records and vibin’ to the sound waves. This post is a work in progress that will be updated periodically to record all impressions. There will be no particular order or sequence – just impressions.

There were others…just will not rekelect in this moment.

Good feeling to find something when you’re paying attention

Looking back with admiration on how my grandparents spoke about their days dancing at the local lindy hop or experiencing Queen Ella Fitz in concert. They would tell of how each artist did ‘their’ thang…sounded as if those moments were some of the best to come from the ‘depression’. Ooh, I see, clear as day, myself, rocking in the chair, front row watching a black and white film, a musical, a western, or just listening to imagine.  They witnessed an era that founded what all is now considered music.

The jazz greats are many…there is no blog or book available to give more insight. I read a book on Miles for a paper in school and figured there would be no way to honor the experience with words.  Earning an ‘A’ on the paper did not appease my disgust of never being able to convey my sentiments. Some things can not be explained with words and I suppose that is jazz.

Soul Excursion Vol 31 – Paw Cut (Pawcut)


He is the persona of keeping it moving and music is life.

At first listen to producer Paw Cut (Pawcut) I was hooked ten seconds later and I continue to dangle in his mystery of skills. His album  is in steady rotation especially when driving (to remain calm). I stay impressed with music coming from Germany.

Download now (free) The Stuff that Dreams are made of

His appreciation for jazz and other genres (if you must) can be found on Soundcloud.

Soundcloud tracks

Pawcut is associated with some very interesting producers. Check out Suede Merit from Australia who has an upcoming release with Collective Resonance“This one features some trippy, atmospheric, experimental beats. This will be his Collective Resonance debut.”

Another association with Pawcut I pleasantly found inspirational – 30 beats in 30 days! All the best to ya Man-of-the-Downtrodden

Trust this volume will grow as with  my admiration of paws…stay tuned.

Soul Excursion Vol 11 – Mr. Ernest Ranglin – 2013


It’s been over ten years since bass player “Tim” introduced me to the stellar sound of master-teacher Ernest Ranglin.  I would play his music for hours and smile all the while multitasking or just relaxing. Click to listen to over an hour of sound and visuals to catch up – if you’re new (or not) to the legend.  Thanks Clan McNicol for the upload!
