Seeing Miles Davis

October 23, 2020

I just took the time to listen once again to the genius of “Burn which was my Night Music for yesterday, and it reminded me that I saw Miles play at Expo in 1986.

I bought my first Miles Davis album (“Sketches of Spain“) when I was still at school, so sometime prior to 1966. He has been a hero of mine now for more than 50 years, and I have enjoyed every phase of his career. However, oddly enough, all I can remember about the Expo concert was the fact that he never once to my recollection ever faced the audience or acknowledged our presence.

Happy 6,024th Birthday, World!

October 23, 2020

According to the calculations of Archbishop Usher of Armargh, today is the earth’s birthday.  His calculations led him to believe that God created the world on October 23rd, 4004 BC.

Now, there are those who say his math is wrong, but let’s not quibble on our birthday!
