    I just ordered this from Amazon. It's been on my radar for a while.

    Dark Magus (the Jekyll and Hyde life of Miles Davis) by his son Gregory. Forward by Clark Terry.

    Where are my dreamers
    Today & tonight.
    Where are my dancers
    leaping madly
    whirling & screaming

    Where are my women
    quietly dreaming
    caught like angels
    on a dark porch
    of a velvet ranch
    dance dance dance dance
    dance dance

    Recently broke this out after picking up a couple of Krautrock classics.

    Why do I drink?
    So that I can write poetry

    Sometimes when it's all spun out
    and all that is ugly recedes
    into a deep sleep
    There is an awaking
    and all that remains is true.
    As the body is ravaged
    the spirit grows stronger.

    Forgive me Father for I know
    what I do.
    I want to hear the last Poem
    of the Last Poet.

    Has anyone here read the Johnny Hartman book, "The Last Balladeer" by Gregg Akkerman?

    I've had interest in acquiring this book, but it's rather pricey, even used. Looking for some input.

    Just picked this one up used at Amazon;

    Leader of the Band - The Life of Woody Herman
    By Gene Lees

    [​IMG]

    I'm truly looking forward to reading this. Herman is a big reason why I'm into Jazz, having heard his album "Giant Steps" as a high school student.

    The cigarette burn'd
    my fingertips
    & dropp'd like a log
    to the rug below
    My eyes took trip
    to dig a chick
    Couch'd like a cat
    at the next window
    My ears assembled music
    out of the swarming streets
    but my mind rebelled
    at the idiot's laughter
    The rising frightful idiot's laughter
    Cheering an army of
    vacuum cleaners

    I'm a musician, so all my books on music are about how to make music. From music theory, harmony and counterpoint to books on jazz guitar instruction.
