Fundamental brilliance.

Sometimes I walk in the room and I have this irrational urge to explode what I know and have done and splatter it like Pollack to create a brand new picture. Without degradation to expectations, new combinations abound, hence expanding the experience. Another level of satisfaction is embedded in my aim to please.

A lot of eyes closed, head nod in the affirmative with a smile moments throughout this evening. Good taste recognizing great flavor.

I don't look at what I'm going to play next, I think of what I'm going to mix next. I conjure it on the screen behind my eyes, then I execute it in real time, in front of people. Performance art: putting together a puzzle made of what you can't see but you can feel.

That's the Jazz in me. Hear how I get jazzy up in Harlem at the Red Rooster.

Recorded on February 20, 2014. Springtime is coming.

6:55 and 9:25 on this explains my method and technique:

Thank you DJ Emskee for the words "Fundamental brilliance." Check out his brilliance here: and here

Thank you HBO and management of the Rolling Stones for electing me to preside over the music for the post screening party for their documentary entitled Crossfire Hurricane.

Earlier this same day The Rolling Stones also released "GRRR!" - a 3/4 disc set of remastered classics with a couple of new tunes.

This night need to sound celebratory. Celebrating 50 years of the Rolling Stones' Rock and Roll with plenty of doses of soul. Members of the band wanted a night about them to also celebrate the artists that influenced them. There was a moment in the evening while the 3rd of 3 Rolling Stone's songs in-a-row was playing and Mick sent over a friend to let me know that I was doing alright with the soul and more heaping doses please.

They kept on with the keep on, the rock on, the get your groove on, and the c'mon.

Roll on.

Stones fans, sure, fantasize about what you would've played...there are so many more songs that I wanted to play, but again, this night was about them and what they wanted to hear and represent...

"You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need"
