Writings about Music

Bespoke Music

Bud Powell, Miles Davis, Lee Konitz and Art Blakey

Lee Konitz pointedly told me how he believes new forms of music arise when a person with deep musical feelings and instincts finds they are out of step with prevailing forms, and so invents one that suits them instead, the implication being that is what I have done as he did himself.
