    I didn't write it, I just transcribed it. And yes, I'm sure there was some herbage happening at the time. 70's California for sure! :D

  6. I know his work as a flute and sax player. I had no idea he transcended sonship in rhythm, sound, and color.

    And the "sonship" "transcends" quite well through the structure of Lloyd's successor to his Waves outing earlier... This time done in a fairly neat "Afro-themed" outing in melody and musicians, as well as instruments featured...

    The "Stones Medley" is given a neat treatment, in both song selection and arrangement... And the rest of the songs, too, you could probably paint a neat portrait to (as we painted to a record like this, in art class, back in grade school)...

    Lively, colorful excursion, sporting Charles' never-ending knack for experimentation, while displaying a well-oiled skill in defining jazz merged with a meaty world beat...

    Hey, better to transcend sonship in rhythm, sound and color than to not transcend it at all!
     
  9. Absolutely. I hate when I'm just kind of stuck in sonship and not able to transcend it.

    I think the Carpenters transcended Daugherty-ship at some point in their career... :laugh:

    This is a much better album than Lloyd's Waves. My favorite track is "Dance Of The Gopis", where Lloyd gets in some fine playing. The Stones medley starts off great, but seems to get lost towards the end (probably due to the transcending thing...).
