Picture Leon Thomas at home, in a yoga headstand, when suddenly he remembers a guy he’s lent money to. From a headstand, he walks on his hands to the phone to dial this guy’s number. Thomas enters the bedroom doorway upside down; he notes that he suddenly “transcended. I was 1 place & my body was another. I dropped to the floor right on my face & my teeth went into my bottom lip. . . So I couldn’t do my show with Pharoah.” But Thomas ended up on stage anyway, hardly able to move his mouth. “I got up on stage and when it came time for me to scat, this sound just came out. It shocked me. I didn’t know where it was coming from. I realized it was me and I realized that the ancestors had arrived.” featured in YODEL IN HIFI: http://uwpress.wisc.edu/books/4594.htm.
