Text by Dawoud Kringle
An elite minority of musicians must function to preserve traditional music. Most musicians will simply follow the herd. What remains are the visionaries.
This is a lonely and hard path. Warriors walk alone.
Mind you, all of them have their purpose. All of them great art that possesses meaning. All of them are worthy of respect. All deserve fair treatment in the fiscal / financial aspects of music.
Poetry by Steve D. Dalachinsky
(Butch Morris @ Tonic)
the line blurred
1. before the surge – cut up from newscasts
it’s brutal out here
i feel like thousands of small knives
are cutting through me
nothing but white sea foam flying
