Thelonious Monk and Charlie Parker in church after-hours
Your writing leaves me breathless. I need to stand up but flowers upon flowers to you.💐💐
Great writing : fast and deep like a Parker solo.
When Monks band was swinging, he would get up from his piano and do his “in the spirit” holy roller dance. I love Monk, enjoyed reading.
Beautiful writing. Will be thinking about this for the days to come: "Most people will never know what it means to be so visible that the only way to disappear is by digging deeper into the self. Sometimes that digging is like digging one’s own grave and settling in while alive, falling into it from time to time and knowing you can revive yourself. It makes sense these players would scream dig! to one another during jam sessions and rehearsals, as if to demand: go deeper, become invisible, come into me."
