“You gotta find a way of saying it, without saying it”–music transcending every cultural, social, political, economic, spiritual divide. The Duke.
Remember when Duke Ellington would play the piano?
America reborn, in the sounds of his ebony and ivory fingers worn
across sorrow’s spine, in melodies torn, tinkering from history’s shackels
of black wood and bone overtone, now cascading upwards into a country
being born afresh from the sweat of hands and soaring spirit again
of ‘labor influencing forgiveness experiences’
like a baptism miracle road parting histories red sea waters
played with compassion in the Ellingtonesque uniqueness
of this epipelagic, ephinaous symphony of our
United States of
We are again, on the precipece keyboards of such a golden age.
New songs of freedom, being born, being torn. Dig deep and push
from songsheet of soul. Labor is upon us, sings from us in new melodies of history reborn.
Let’s go America, the Beautiful and move forward boldy. Mauri ora. This is our song from Hollywood Today.
