Politics and All that Jazz...
It's been a long time coming... but finally we not only have an historic moment in our political landscape but the promise of good music too!
I have to admit it feels good to know that our President-Elect enjoys the music of John Coltrane and Miles Davis. He's listening to that on his iPod. And I'm glad that he keeps an open mind to listen to other types of music too because that speaks well of how he will govern our nation.
Listening with the ability to hear.
Not to mention some of his other favorites are old-school soul (Stevie Wonder and Earth, Wind and Fire ), and classical (Yo-Yo Ma). Oh yeah, and he thinks we should have arts in the schools.
Sounds like he might be a political jazz cat. Louis, Duke, Bird, Count, Mingus, Miles, Coltrane, Betty, Shirley, Billie, and the rest are smiling now. Let the swinging and improv begin!
