To me jazz is a montage of a dream deferred. A great big dream—yet to come—and always yet—to become ultimately and finally true…The Bird was looking for that future (of jazz) like mad. The Newborns, Chico, Dave, Gulda, Milt, Charlie Mingus. That future is what you call pregnant. Potential papas and mamas of tomorrow’s jazz are all known. But THE papa and THE mama—maybe both—are anonymous. But the child will communicate. Jazz is a heartbeat—its heartbeat is yours. You will tell me about its perspectives when you get ready.
A shamelessly commercial dip into the Blue Note back catalogue featuring some stone classics.
