haiku for the day: music

As many of you know, I love music. All kinds of music. Which means I love musicians. I want to embrace my blues, I play something real bluesy. Like Muddy Waters or Chet Baker. If I want to embrace my loneliness, l listen to Sinatra, especially at three in the morning. Don’t know why but three a.m. seems to be good for that sort of thing. If I want to be joyous, I find joyous music. There’s Satchmo and his trumpet and his gravelly voice. There’s nothing like Beethoven and his “Ode to Joy” for that. I want to jump up and howl. There’s music for that too. And many a time I’ve gone to a concert and been mesmerized by the back-up musicians, not the main guys. Because they are such awesome musicians.
