It’s no mystery to anyone that life can be very complicated.
How do you get from here to where you want to be!
Yes my friend life is filled with uncertainty.
And then, other times… your path is very simple.
The hows of your life & what to do’s become very basic.
If you’re lucky this will happen @ regular intervals in your life.
I have never known anyone that was lucky enough to have a life without ever wondering… am I doing the right thing?
That being said…
Sometimes the point is simply to groove!
It don’t matter much what the situation is, could be your life, could be your job.
You could be sittin’ in with a Jazz combo when it comes on slowly.
Suddenly the way is clear, the clouds between your ears part and you can hear the drummer laying some down, then you start to hear the bass, maybe some thick slabs of B3 come next. (Stabbing horn section optional)
All this information start crawling around the bandstand and it all becomes so clear!
You’ve done the work & all the pieces are there.
So…you just groove!
Man…you are the groove!
All hot & slippery, solid & vaporous
Full bright light & joy.
Finally the light inside is switched on.
Everyone in the group is having their say, you can hear the conversation develop, then…when the groove is rock solid & you’re deep in it.
Then you start passin’ it around, tradin’ fours, eights.
Each in their turn says what they feel, what they truly feel, cause ya can’t hide nothing here…in this place at this moment there is only one truth.
You are there in the moment.
You groove, take it all in till finally eyes start to glance at your way and they have only one message…
Step up Groover!

Life is rhythm and rhythm is everything!

Monk, to me the idiom hardly matters. Jazz, funk, blues, whatever. If it's freewheelin' improv and the groove is happening, there's nothing better. Ever since my teens (a LONG time ago), when it first happened to me, I've lived for nothing else but those magical moments.

Thanks for putting it down in a way I could hear, see, taste and smell.
