Raphael Saadiq – Big Easy

Drawing one from a Cat whose #urbanmusicology I rate HIGHLY.

Singer, Songwriter, Player, Producer, all round HEAVYWEIGHT of the AUTHENTIC music game whose ear is ALWAYS to the ground and finger ALWAYS on the pulse…

I could wax on and on and on and on and on about the mans musical achievements and but, as themusicologist regulars know, this space is about the MUSIC rather than the ‘chat’ so here it is…

Drawn from ‘The Way I See It’ set…

“Between the dark, heavily laden treetops of the spreading chestnut trees could be seen the dark blue of the sky, full of stars, all solemn and golden, which extended their radiance unconcernedly into the distance. That was the nature of the stars. and the trees bore their buds and blossoms and scars for everyone to see, and whether it signified pleasure or pain, they accepted the strong will to live. flies that lived only for a day swarmed toward their death. every life had its radiance and beauty. i had insight into it all for a moment, understood it and found it good, and also found my life and sorrows good.” -Hermann Hesse

“I wish my baby would come and tell me…..”
“Sometimes, ‘the Lord’ just takes blessed people because they’ve filled their purpose early. Everyone plays their own song. They sing their story to the world and leave behind a melody of memories. Sometimes… their song is cut short and ends too early. But that doesn’t mean their music was any less sweet or that they left any less of an impression.”
– Linda Kage

Hold My Baby’s Hand – James Brown & the Famous Flames

“The eruption of feelings and emotions that follows a near-death experience, or any event that causes us to stop and look deeply at the reality of our lives, is ripe with the potential for insight & clarity.” – Allan Lokus

“I began to understand that suffering and disappointments and melancholy are there not to vex us or cheapen us or deprive us of our dignity but to mature and transfigure us.”
-Hermann Hesse

Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City – Bobby Bland

“Dimensions are limitless; time is endless. Conditions are not invariable; terms are not final. Thus, the wise man looks into space, and does not regard the small as too little, nor the great as too much; for he knows that there is no limit to dimension. He looks back into the past, and does not grieve over what is far off, nor rejoice over what is near; for he knows that time is without end. He investigates fullness and decay, and does not rejoice if he succeeds, nor lament if he fails; for he knows that conditions are not invariable. He who clearly apprehends the scheme of existence does not rejoice over life, nor repine at death; for he knows that terms are not final“. – Zhuangzi (Chuang Tzu)
