To Tony Williams:
( Okay, if you don’t know Tony Williams, stop what you are doing, and listen to a recording of him. RIGHT NOW!!!)
Listening to ” Nefertiti”
Wayne and Miles state the melody over and over,
while TW rips open a new space/
tears at the core/
subdivides and opens up spaces unknown .
at what point does the boiling chicken cease to be chicken and part of the soup? ?
the master pushes and pulls in ways unknown/
completely pushes the rhythm to destruction,
yet pulls back, and the whole is whole…..
many insecure drummers seriously contemplating selling their kits…. or jumping off a bridge.
