5K C2 – 2:01.5 split. What do you suppose a song entitled Lincoln Reviews His Notes might sound like?
5K C2 – 2:01.0 splits. Pat Metheny Group – First Circle.
Rowing done. 7888 meters to round off to 350,000 meters for the year Bill Evans – Conversations With Myself for music.
Listening to Larry Carlton’s guitar solo on Kid Charlemagne makes me think all those years ago Steely Dan gave me an unfair baseline for what constitutes a good solo in rock.
Got a row in on the ole C2. Steely Dan – Pretzel Logic for sounds.
I’m not sure if this is resistance or acquiescence, but I’m listening to this wonderful music to deal with yet another grey day here on the plains.
Bathroom window renovation for a friend this afternoon. Accompanied by Bill Evans – The Complete Riverside Recordings. An afternoon well spent.
Got a 40 min. row in. Very sore now but glad to be indoors as it’s 10º outside at the moment. Chick Corea – Trilogy for listening.
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.
