As fragrant as a Flower!

As fragrant as a Flower!

Hey Hey youse beautiful beings! I hope you are feelin’ as IRIE as I and I am. The summer solstice is near and the sun’s fiery, lovely light will shine upon some of us in the northern hemisphere and stand still. WOWZERS! I know at least in Bellingham, Washington I already hear the sweet chirps of fowl welcoming the first glimpse of rays at 343in the glorious morning and the light slowly vanishes into the Northern Sound around 10 pm. I nearly caught the sunset’s tail, but it eludes me till the morrow. I’m sure I’ll catch it one day. I can’t wait!! Here’s a summery mix that has a lotta of irie sour diesel vibrations through it. May you shine brighter than the SUN and Catch his TAIL!

The other day I met this cat ,Josh, with lovely deep green eyes, tearing up the Imperial March via the accordion on the corner. For his fantastic gypsy star wars rendition I gave him a small aquamarine crystal I had been keeping in my pocket from another kindred spirit ,Jules, fitting enough name. The Accordionist just happened to be into crystals so it wasn’t an insult, like a 40 cent tip. We got to gabbing as usual about color waves, vibrations and ,new to me, Wilhelm Reich( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilhelm_Reich ) and his discovery of the orgasmic energy level. Josh continued to tell me that this orgasmic energy wave is also at the same energy created  by waterfalls and nature itself but in just a concentrated way when someone is having an orgasm. Wilhelm tapped into that , no pun intended, and made huge rooms full of this energy, not for orgasms, though that would be dope, but for healing. Wilhelm ,”coined the term “orgone” – derived from “orgasm” and “organism” – for a cosmic energy he said he had discovered, which he said others referred to as GOD. In 1940 he started building orgone accumulators, devices that his patients sat inside to harness the reputed health benefits, leading to newspaper stories about sex boxes that cured cancer.” Subsequently, the FDA didn’t approve of his healing orgasmic findings and burned 6 TONS!!!(an adult elephant) of his literature. Later Wilhelm was thrown in prison and died of “heart failure”. Josh had a “puck” tucked in the glove in his accordion box from http://kindredgifting.com/ that used this orgone principle to devise a portable version of this orgone energy for healing and other uses. Holding it in my hand I couldn’t tell if the shaking in my body was from the puck or due to shivering because I was cold as shit on a “warm” Bellingham Washington day. So here’s a mixtape about the vibrating energies that we pass from hand to hand after the initial connections are made, if willing, all over this precious Earth, enjoy. Wah wahwah Wah wah Wah wah wah Wah Hz OHMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

JaZz has always been there since the beginning of Time, from Debussy to Dave Brubeck, Gershwin to the Grateful Dead, from the first joyous inhale of life to the slow wimpering exhale of death, from the transformation of a caterpillar to a butterfly, a single cell to an complex iris of a hazel eye and everything in between. Jazz is truth, creation, freedom, mistakes, mastery of sound and colorful magic.”The Magician is a seasonal transdimensional traveler who can simultaneously be here now and bear witness to the birth of the cosmos. He dips in the pool of time and ripples the dawn that illuminates our path” You may not know that you love Jazz, but you do , YOU ARE JAZZ, WE, as a collective, are a JAZZ ENSEMBLE. Capable of moving in any direction, FLUID, making notes that haven’t been heard of or invented yet, the space in between the space between , below and beyond, FAROUT, OUTTA SIGHT, DOPE and sensually close by, it is the GREAT I AM. Open yerself to the truth man, DIG! God hath used math, science, JaZz and luck to paint the universe, and you are THE drop on the tip of his paintbrush, a unique splatter of beautiful iridescent color, remember, “there will be never be another like you”. May you always experience the beautiful breath of life and be fruitful in everything you do!

Dorothy Ashby, the Hip Harpist

Standard

Softly ,as in a morning sunrise, her ancient strings are plucked, grasped and manipulated to achieve the sounds of angel wings floating on a heavenly breeze.The Harp, the earliest versions are found around 3500 B.C. and since then they have been strummed across this beautiful world, including the kora from Afrika, the koto in Japan, or China’s guzheng, even Guiness beer has it in their logo.

The harp used to be an instrument for the orchestra pit until two young girls from Detroit , both born in August, decided to pick up this stringed winged bird and fly off to the groove of the Jazz bebop beat. Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane are two of the most famous jazz harpists I could think of that has really changed the course of the harp. I could probably count the number jazz harpists on my hands, and thank goodness with each year that passes another calloused fingertip comes into this obscure fold.

Where Alice Turiyasangitananda Coltrane strummed transcendental spirit fire on her harp, Dorothy Ashby plucked those strings with the cool hip shaking Soul that dug down deep into your bone marrow! I love them both, really, two of my favorite artists!

As with Alice , Dorothy looked out into world music to express her soulful voice. Mrs.Ashby played everything from the piano, the Harp, and the koto. I encourage you to get lost in both of their magnificent albums, you will be pleased nonetheless.

In the meantime, you can groove your socks off to this Dorothy Ashby compilation, which is just the tip of the cool iceberg! If you have heard one of the tunes in a mixtape I’m not sorry for the repeat , just one of her songs can make a mediocre mixtape superb! As you listen to each pluck, strum and mastery of the vibration I leave you cats  to remember, Be hip, Be cool and always be groovy!
