I heard of this book from an episode of the Upstream Podcast (www.upstreampodcast.org/). I’m not very far into it yet, but it is fascinating. Lots of discussion so far about the extent of racism and organized crime in the early Jazz scene.
Any of you weirdos using #bookwyrm ? I set up a profile because federation is cool. Also because Amazon owns Goodreads and Amazon is the devil. Anyhow hmu if you read books and stuff. firstname.lastname@example.org
I record some of my practice sessions because it’s really hard to critique my own playing while I’m playing. In this clip, I’m trying to use the F minor pentatonic scale to spontaneously compose a melody. In the second chorus, I am trying to adapt the head to “Eastern Standard Time” by Don Drummond before returning to minor penatonic noodling.
