Traveling Across the Waters...
It's something I do every time I play, so it's nice to be able to show you a bit of how it feels to carry on these traditions while honoring my ancestors and the elders who are my teachers. Common Culture: Across the Waters has an unusual line-up tonight--you gotta be there to witness this. I think Sun Ra would be intrigued; it's definitely ancient to the future.
