on a cold winter night
with my good friend Paul
we listened to ” karma” by Pharoah Sanders.
“The creator has a master plan”
Nowadays I only listen to it once a year.
The power and dangers of a two chord vamp-
the intense shrieking, joy, yearning, love, expansion, the depths of sorrow
but never hatred.
Two basses; french horn, Lonnie Liston Smith,
the beat was never lost, in the midst of it all
eternal, always a deep well to drink from.
Two years after Coltrane had passed
A whole structure in space. I never was a punk rocker
nor went evangelical- but this work sends me on a a journey.
a long one , that I am starting to understand again.
