There are more guys than girls in jazz.
Next-to-no lady trumpeters (oh, there are a few)
but it doesn't matter because, for me, jazz trumpet is all about one guy
He made this famous album in 1959
called Kind of Blue
which is kind of, always,
how I feel.
That album gets into your bones
goes and goes
starts, hesitates, reaches out, feels
gor the music, the sound, the thing you want to change
always grasping for the unattainable makes you
kind of excited,
kind of sorry.
