Editor's note: I don't like or follow jazz but the cover won me over. Pittman, grandson of Booker T. Washington, played with many of the giants of jazz during his career and his playing evidences that accomplished cache of bandmates. It still does nothing for me. Musically, it sounds tight but the mood makes me think of drugged up former marching band members slumming it with hookers and seedy bar owners. These accomplished sorts would become the heroes for the ilk of child-raping leftists like Ginsberg and brain-zombie Timothy Leary who were attempting to change the world consciousness to a perfect state of natural peace where anything goes because it assuages the moral relativist. A notion which Charles Mingus put into perspective by stating that, “You can't improvise on nothing; you've got to improvise on something”. Something that both Bookers knew and even a schlub-fucker like me knows. The difference is a matter of intellectual dishonesty and not so much about "cosmic truth". Maybe I don't really have anything against jazz at all but rather the aftermath of the age. I mean, we have come full circum and the ideas of the supposed counter-culture have become institutionalized and a milquetoast RINO such as Paul Ryan has become the counter-culture and a lifelong liberal in GOD EMPEROR TRUMP is the Anti-Christ. Haha. Which only proves that reality is a better mind-opener than ayahuasca or LSD.
