Morning C2 done. 2:01.6 for 20 min. Listening to Chris Thile & Brad Meldau.
Evening walk completed. Cold and crisp but no wind like last night’s horror episode. Interesting listen tonight. Tierney Sutton – The Sting Variations.
2nd 20 min row on C2 completed. Hung in with a 2:01 pace. Listening to Newtone.
Wherein Nate Smith’s snare drum gives George Lawrence Stone, Ted Reed, and Joe Morello a big fat wet kiss.
Evening walk completed. Started peppy, ended frozen and miserable. But! I listened to Nate Smith – Kinfolk so it was worth it.
5k walk done. Nice temps. Cold, but not too. Delvon Lamar Organ Trio – Close But No Cigar for music.
Listening to the AnDré Mali Quartet live on KUVO FM Denver. Fantastic groove.
Here is a short list of men I’ve never met whom I nevertheless allow into my ear-holes. They are buglers of some renown. The list is in order of something.
1. Woody Shaw
3. Freddie Hubbard. The Maiden Voyage solo was a career.
4. Miles, particularly if he was pissing someone off at that very moment.
5. Don Cherry/Lester Bowie/Bill Dixon, because WTF guys?
Also, Clark Terry, we did meet and it was seminal. I love you.
Also, also, whoever decided I should have to stop and look up whether it’s ‘who’ or ‘whom’ every time (and then still get it wrong,) should be wrapped in an old Sousaphone and set adrift. You know what you can do with that ‘m.’
1st walk of a new streak. 5K in the early evening.
Jackie McLean – Jacknife for the ears.
I’m not a religious person, but Sunday does remain my day of rest. A good time to reflect and do some of the light chores that don’t require my full mental focus.
My music collection contains around thirty versions of … the rest “Come Sunday”
I started today strong with good food and a good friend and then I started feeling slower and weaker as the day went on. Like something got in my bones.
No symptoms just fatigue. So I did the only thing I really know how to do, which is move.
I headed out for my daily walk, but it’s already 8pm so it’s dark. I’m kind of slogging along listening to music.
Just as I’m walking around the pile of ‘decorative rubble’ that marks the halfway point at Parkville South H.S and Highway 9, Marvin Gaye sings,
“Don’t you know how sweet and wonderful life can be?”
You know how he does it. Damn.
It’s like having all the tired cells in your blood injected with honey.
Feeling better now.
Today’s 5K walk with more 70s music. This time a better collection. Can You Dig It? The ’70s Soul Experience. Some amazing string arrangements on this stuff too. The Spinners – Could It be I’m Falling in Love.
Not sure what it says about me that I love this shoegazey music so much. Anyway, another daily walk in the books. This time with Tame Implala – Currents.
Walk is done. 161 straight days of walking at least 5 kilometers. Over 500 miles! And this absolutely gorgeous album. Bennie Green – Catwalk.
I’ve had this 8CD collection on my computer for years now. I finally decided to load it up for my daily walks and give it a spin.
I can’t think of a way to describe this excruciating set other than
C2 1x20min. 4788m. 2:05.3/500m. Pretty lame attempt tonight. Just couldn’t summon…that thing. Larry Young for support.
Got my walk in early. 5K as the sun came up. Sunny day today. Listened to some really awful music this morning. That happens sometimes.
On January 1, 2020, works from 1924 will enter the US public domain, where they will be free for all to use and build upon, without permission or fee.
Partial list is here.
To find more material from 1924, … the rest “Public Domain Day 2020”
2nd 40min row. 2:05.4/500m. Gonna feel 80 minutes in the morning for sure.
