Written for Robert Francis Kennedy in the immediate wake of his murder.

 

Mournful majesty from our most important living jazz alto saxophonist -- a rung beneath Bird -- Philip Wells Woods.

"If an individual, through either his own volition or events over which he had no control, found himself taking up residence in a country undefined by flags or physical borders, he could be assured of one immediate and abiding consequence. He was on his own, and solitude and loneliness would probably be his companions unto the grave." -- James Lee Burke, Rain Gods

Great stuff, Charlie. I also love the richness of the stand-up bass sound. There's nothing like it. Much like the sound of the "Hammond B-3 Organ with Leslie" no synthesized or electric instrument can capture it adequately. Even when digitally sampled using the finest equipment, it's just not the same. Not even close.
