Just returned from hearing Ches Smith and Matt Mitchell at Korzo in Brooklyn,  playing duet interpretations of

some strange  jazz etudes written by Matt.

I was mesmerized, deer in the headlights, inspired.

Seems they have been working on the pieces for a number of years and the audience this night received great benefit of their deep dark work.

How few people create,  whilst here, the time to manifest such hypnotic powerful testimonies to belief…i do not know but these two sure did.

Some of these complex musical exercises  were like wild prism, wheel within wheel, matrix gestures of complaint renewal and acceptance . Natural geysers of necessity. Sometimes effortless and sometimes kind of surly. American somehow. The good America.

I have to re-think things after hearing these guys and what a great thing. Very inspiring.
