audio: flames from trane 1965

Posted in audio, jazz music with tags , , on September 25, 2010 by Word-Drum

Close your eyes and hold on. Something got into Trane in 1965. Where ever he flew, Elvin was there with him.

The tempo is the speed of light. The feeling is a little mad, like Vincent van Gogh, yet the music’s brilliance burns like the sun. (It’s a live recording so adjust your ears accordingly.)

This ain’t ‘Smooth Jazz.’ This is as hard as it gets.

I put lyrics to Coltrane’s urgent repetitive riff: “We Don’t Like This Government!” Do you feel me?!

no word from drum
you know you need some
he searches but he’s dumb

as a poet, he should know it
‘fore he throw it

keeper of time
ripping
dancer in rhyme
but not tripping
exploding your mind…

(but not this time)

all he can say, is
third parties get no play 
not smarter than Beck
word has no self-respect
just left-wing reject
other than that
the drum is broken
the groove of truth
won’t be spoken
some day soon
it will again be smokin’

(in summery:)

-stay Republican

-beat the Dems

-go on with your life

-it’s easier to fix the drum
rather than make a new one
