Silver, Horace, Jazz musiciansUnited StatesBiography. PianistsUnited States Biography. Pastras, Philip. I Speak Music I speak music, the international language. I speak and people everywhere understand me. I speak and people listen. I speak and people dance. I speak and people sing.
I speak and people pat their feet and clap The Winter - Storhet Av Morke - Grandeur Of Eternal Cold hands.
Occasionally I speak and people cry, but more often when I speak I bring joy, happiness, and uplift. I speak music, the universal language. I speak and the universe speaks to me. I speak and the universe speaks through me. I speak music, the personal language of my soul. I seek music that will change the blues within my soul to a rhapsody. I speak the music of my thought. I speak the music of my word. I Im Tellin Ya - Al Cohn - Al Cohns Tones the music of my deed.
I speak the music of my soul, which is continually being composed and de-composed, arranged and re-arranged so that its melody, harmony, and rhythm may be in accord with all people and the universe. Horace Silver. Olsen recordings honoring horace silver a select bibliography of music publications awards index Yet each generation has produced relatively few individuals with something so distinctive, personal, and recognizable that when you hear the music not only do you know whose music it is but it Ring Of Fire - Jerry Lee Lewis - 16 Jerry Lee Lewis Hits seems that you know that person.
These are the ones who will always be remembered. In this very privileged group belongs the hero of this book. Enjoy his story! I say roughly because, although I have a keen recollection for past events, my memory for dates is extremely bad. I do not believe that the dates are so important. But the stories are. I have tried to bare my soul in this book. I reveal things about myself that Ive never revealed to anyone before, not even to my family members and close friends.
I hope that it will give you, the reader, a keen insight into what Im all about. Maybe it Coffee Talk - DJ Krush - Code4109 help you to understand my dedication to this glorious music we call jazz. This autobiography should provide some historical documentation, but I also hope that it will be enjoyable and interesting reading.
Im trying my best to tell it like it is and like it Im Tellin Ya - Al Cohn - Al Cohns Tones . In any event, it is as accurate a picture of my #Desu - T-Time - All Day Animay as I can remember. Sometimes when I was on tour and in my hotel room, I passed the time by writing poetry or just writing down some of my thoughts on certain topics.
I kept these writings in a logbook and would like to share some of them with you. Ive been so involved in writing lyrics for my music in recent years that I havent written much poetry, but I would like to get back into it.
I dont see much dierence between a lyric writer and a poet. To me, they are opposite sides of the same coin: one creates poetry set to music, and the other creates poetry without music. I have included some of these writings as epigraphs to the chapters in this volume.
Four of these individuals have made their transition and one remains. Ive had many friends throughout my life, but these are the ones I remember and treasure the most, the ones who have been like brothers and sisters to me.
Bob Marshall and I met and became close friends when we were in high school. Bob was well read and well versed in worldly aairs. He also had a great vocabulary and was a good speller and knew the denition of many words, skills that I am rather weak in. Whenever I wrote a new tune and was pleased with it and wanted to share it with someone, I would often call him and play it for him over the phone.
When I was writing my lyrics and didnt know the denition of a word and couldnt nd it in the dictionary because I wasnt spelling it right, I would call him, and he would always come to my rescue.
Bob has recently passed on. I miss him dearly. I met Don Williams through trumpeter Blue Mitchell, and we became great friends. He loved my music and loved me. He was always concerned about my welfare. Since I live alone, he would call me at least twice a week to check on me and see if I was faring well. If I wasnt, he would always be there to assist me in whatever way he could.
I am the godfather xv. For this I am very grateful. She is a joy to my heart. I miss Don dearly. Bill was the conductor of the Los Angeles Modern String Orchestra, which consisted of a group of string players who were composers and who wanted to get their compositions performed.
I wrote a three-part suite for string orchestra called Message Im Tellin Ya - Al Cohn - Al Cohns Tones the Maestro, which was performed and recorded with the Los Angeles Modern String Orchestra. William Henderson conducted. Bill had a great classical background. Whenever I wanted some information about classical music or any of its composers, I could always rely on him to supply that information. He also knew a lot about Broadway Im Tellin Ya - Al Cohn - Al Cohns Tones and their compositions and shared that knowledge with me.
Bill was a true friend, always there for me when I needed him. He used to hang out in all the jazz clubs where we performed, and he introduced himself to me. We discovered that we both had Cape Verdean ancestry. He was a lover of jazz and a fan of my music. We became close friends. He was very proud of me and my accomplishments. His mother was a great cook and would often invite me to dinner. Im Tellin Ya - Al Cohn - Al Cohns Tones became the godfather of his daughter, Claudia.
She has grown up to be a wonderful young lady, and I am very proud of her. Perry, as I called him, was always there to encourage and support me. I met Carol Forbes when she was eighteen years old. Her father, Graham Forbes, who was a pianist and conductor and had worked with singers Frank Sinatra and Roy Hamilton, brought her to the Cork and Bib, a. I became friendly with Graham and his whole family. Carol is a great painter.
I have many of her paintings displayed in my home. She is a lover of jazz music per se and a lover of my music in particular. Graham has passed on. Through the years, Carol has been a true friend.
She lives in New York, and I live in Malibu. We phone each other frequently, and I see her when I am in New York. I treasure our friendship greatly.
I have recently acquired two new friends who have Burial Hordes - Entering the Untrodden Forest a meaningful part of my life. They are Norman and Gail Jacobson. They have become like family to me.
