The Pine Tree: An Appeal to Heaven series

was created from 1998 -2000.

 

They were prayers,

invocations to God,

to rise,

to breathe,

to hope,

after the sudden death of my Mother.

X

I had lost the use of my hands from packing,

packing, lifting, lifting

packing,

lifting, lifting, packing,

lifting, lifting, lifting

packing,

packing, lifting, lifting, lifting,

packing

my Mom’s home

while I was

shot with grief and shock.

My hands

and

congenitally dislocated / incomplete hip joint

crumbled and broke.

X

I had no home

– living illegally in my studio where the heat was off on the weekends.

I took showers at the YMCA.

X

I could only hold a wallpaper brush

as my hands were kept still in braces.

I wrapped my braced hands with plastic.

I had to create.

I painted on back of older work

– creating a white tabula rasa ground.

I drew a line down the center with a 2B pencil.

The brush strokes were rhythmic

– back and forth,

inhale and exhale,

a lullaby.

X

Creating this series kept me alive

– the sacred spark of divinity was buried within me.

I could hear its longing whisper to be found,

its quiet continuous wail:

“Can you hear me?

Please respond.

Come to me.”

Note:

works from the series

Pine Tree: An Appeal to Heaven

are now in

corporate and private art collections

Symbolic depiction of Rawls’

VEIL OF IGNORANCE.

The citizens making the choices

about their society make them from an “original position”

of equality and ignorance (left),

without knowing what

gender, race, abilities, tastes, wealth,

or

position in society they will have (right).

Rawls claims this ensures they will choose a just society.

FIRST NIGHT | JAZZ

Charles Lloyd at the EFG London Jazz Festival review — a wonder to behold

★★★★★
Here was an evening that reflected the span of the sprawling EFG London Jazz Festival. Headlining was Charles Lloyd, a venerable saxophonist who has led many musical lives: teenage sideman to BB King; million-seller with Keith Jarrett in his band; a jazz dropout phase gigging with the Beach Boy; and eventually a triumphant return as elder statesman.

In support were Nérija, a mostly female septet, featuring the talents of a new wave of London players, among them Cassie Kinoshi on alto sax, Sheila Maurice-Grey on trumpet, and Shirley Tetteh on guitar…But to cite the evening as a kind of generational face-off would be misleading. First, Lloyd may be 83, but surrounded by younger players, his music remains forward-looking

About

“Jazz, at its very roots, is a music created, developed and shaped by Black culture. The EFG London Jazz Festival has worked for years to promote cultural diversity and opportunity, but we know that there remains much more to be done.

We are listening, learning and supporting, and hope that our Festival programme this year, despite global challenges, represents the diverse society in which we live and the range of people who form the backbone of our music.

Moving forward, we will try our best to be self-aware, to challenge ourselves at every turn and to actively push for positive change.”

Charles Lloyd

https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/nov/18/jazz-star-charles-lloyd-im-a-seeker-trying-to-change-the-world-with-sound

“We played the Royal Albert Hall in 1964,” says Charles Lloyd, recollecting his first ever UK performance. “Packed it to the rafters.” He was 26, playing tenor saxophone in Cannonball Adderley’s majestic band and getting his first taste of a world beyond US jazz and blues clubs. “I’m looking forward to returning,” says Lloyd of this weekend’s appearance at the EFG London jazz festival.

Now 83, he speaks in a drawl that mixes jazz argot and spiritual entreaties – he says he spent the pandemic “building steps”, meaning to a higher plane rather than a DIY project – and is raring to re-engage with an audience. “I’ve been playing in front of audiences since I was nine. Been a professional musician since I was 12. It’s what I do.”

Charles Lloyd – Arrows Into Infinity

A Film by Dorothy Darr and Jeffrey Morse

Arrows Into Infinity chronicles the arc of an improviser’s still-unfolding life, moving through time with memories, archive footage and music, lots of music. Charles Lloyd’s story is a special one, and it intersects with important moments in jazz history. Lloyd grew up in Memphis, Tennessee, and had early contact both to masters of an increasingly sophisticated jazz tradition and the raw voices of the blues. Booker Little was a childhood friend, Phineas Newborn a mentor. In his teens Lloyd hit the road with Howlin’ Wolf. He befriended Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry and Billy Higgins in a period when blueprints for musical freedom were redrawn, and replaced Eric Dolphy in Chico Hamilton’s band, soon building a reputation as an exceptional saxophonist and a composer of strikingly original melodies. His own groups drew together some of the most exciting players of the day, and his late 60s quartet with Keith Jarrett and Jack DeJohnette made an impact at many levels, playing opposite Hendrix and Janis Joplin at the Fillmore Auditorium, touring Europe’s festivals to great acclaim, making a now-legendary foray into the Soviet Union, and selling a million copies of their Forest Flower album, a massive FM radio hit. Then Charles Lloyd retreated from the limelight, preferring to play his flute in the mountain forests of Big Sur. For almost two decades sightings of him in jazz contexts were rare. A tentative return to public service was made in the company of pianist Michel Petrucciani; the 1989 ECM recording Fish Out Of Water, with Bobo Stenson, Palle Danielsson and Jon Christensen signaled a new beginning. Since then Lloyd has led a succession of outstanding bands including the recent quartet with Jason Moran, Reuben Rogers and Eric Harland and the Sangam trio with Harland and Zakir Hussain. These musicians contribute their thoughts about Charles Lloyd’s work to this remarkable documentary – as do Herbie Hancock, Ornette Coleman, Robbie Robertson, Jack DeJohnette, Don Was, John Densmore, Jim Keltner, Geri Allen, Larry Grenadier, Alicia Hall Moran, Stanley Crouch, Manfred Eicher, Michael Cuscuna, Arthur Monroe and Ayuko Babu. Arrows Into Infinity is available in DVD and Blu-ray formats. Running time 113 minutes. Subtitles in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian.

Cultivating

RADICAL

Compassion

Author Tara Brach is a skilled psychotherapist and meditation teacher who has developed countless ways to help her students transform their suffering not only for their own sake but on behalf of the world. Over the last seventeen years she has focused particularly on the RAIN meditation practice, which “cultivates a trust in our own basic goodness and by extension helps us recognize and trust that same light shining through all beings.”  Brach suggests:   

When you are caught in difficult emotions, the RAIN meditation can bring you back to a wise and compassionate presence.

Give yourself a few moments to pause and turn inward.

X
X

R   Recognize 

what is happening. Mentally whisper whatever you are aware of: fear, anger, hurt, shame.

X

A   Allow. 

Let whatever you are feeling be here, without judging it, trying to fix it, or ignoring it. Simply pause and “let be.” You might whisper “This too belongs.”

X

I   Investigate. 

With curiosity, feel into your body—your throat, chest, belly. Discover where the emotions live inside you. You might gently place a hand wherever feelings are strongest. Sense what is needed or being asked for right now. Is it love? Forgiveness? Acceptance? Understanding?

X

N   Nurture. 

Offer care to feelings of vulnerability, hurt, or fear. Let the touch of your hand be tender, and send whatever message might most offer healing. You can imagine this coming from your own awake heart or from another being (friend, grandparent, spiritual figure, dog) you trust and love.

After the RAIN

Take some moments in stillness, simply sensing the quality of presence that has unfolded. Notice the shift from when you started (an angry or fearful or victimized self) to the compassionate awareness that is always here.

How to Rage with Travis Scott

 

A Travis Scott show is crowd surfing, moshing, sweat, blood and vomit.

And that’s just Travis himself.

We’ve seen him hang from ceilings in small venues and jump off of twenty foot amps in coliseums.

We caught up the with The Matador himself,

and

he gives us his personal insights to raging.

File this wisdom away for a rowdy night.

Excellent article:

Jeff Ihaza, Senior Editor, Rolling Stone

The Travis Scott Brand Wasn’t Built For This

Fans have been quick to rebuke the rapper following Astroworld’s tragic outcome.

It says volumes about his type of world-building.

For close to a decade, Travis Scott has carefully positioned himself squarely at the center of hype.

His rise coincided with the corporate takeover …

…It reveals a fundamental flaw in the rapper’s multimillion-dollar brand.

No one comes to Travis Scott for a deeply cultivated community of fans that care for one another.

They come for hype.

For the chance to get a pair of sneakers that’ll quadruple in value over the course of a few months.

For a chance to be front-row at a social-media-worthy experience.

After the tragic and avoidable events of Astroworld, it will be an almost impossible sell.
