One day one of my best friends bought me a CD of the Best of the Beatles. I thought it to be quite odd, since I never really listened to very much of the Beatles during that time. I did not have one record by them, but somehow the music was and still is very much apart of me. It is that type of music you may never own, but know all the words too whenever it’s played on the radio, or you just suddenly start humming a verse out of the blue for no reason at all. It is amazing how much The Beatles’s are apart of the fabric of our deep subconsciousness, whether we want it to be or not. Lately, I have been revisiting that CD and exploring every aspect of it, as I do with jazz. It brings me back to memories of my childhood, but mostly my dad who loved to listen to Latin Bolero’s in NYC on the radio, but whenever we drove down south we’d lose the Spanish station. As a result, we listen to this type of American music. Forever in my heart and soul! Rip to my dad and the rest!
