continued the revolutionary approach of John Coltrane playing the saxophone in the 60s. The LA-based composer and innovator on the electrified saxophone preceded smooth jazz and new age and recorded some of the most important fusion jazz recordings during the 70s. Lots of hip hop tracks in the 90s sampled Klemmer.
No music at the beach. As it would be too distracting from the beauty of nature and watching women.
I get so involved concentrating on the music I don’t listen to any music when I ride a bicycle as I will run somebody over or worse. So when I ride a bicycle I sing my own songs and try to avoid any big bumps etc. OUCH!!!
I avoid going to clubs and concerts as well if I can, because, I spend so much time performing it’s no fun plus there are too many distractions to the artist and the music.
If I want to float instead of run, I would listen to New Age Music. I am always naked, running or not. I would prefer running through something softer on my naked body than corn stalks. Plus I would feel very, very competitive around anything so hard and long.
I don’t eat cucumbers. There are more interesting erotic things to do with cucumbers and my lovers than to waste them by eating them.
My own music. To remind me who I am and how «great» I am. Just to give me added confidence.
If I want to «dive in» to my sadness etc. and cry it all out I listen to «A Man Alone», selected Barbara Streisand (f.e. the «Wet» album) and Billie Holiday. If I want to get out of a depressed mood I like to listen to any and all kinds of «pop dance music» like Amber or Shakira.
I once, in the middle of the night, put my largest speakers out on my deck and played African Animal Sounds CDs at full blast and then watched all the neighbors lights in their houses turn on and all the «brave husbands» come out of their houses with baseball bats, guns and assorted garden tools. One man actually came out in a pith hat! Then they came out again in the morning daylight again to search for «those animals» from last night! I laughed for months.
I am fascinated by any and all music. So I can’t «fall asleep» to music as I end up listening, concentrating and analyzing it. Therefore it keeps me awake.
I don’t watch girls go by. I invite them in and play whatever music they want.
I don’t eat breakfast. I do eat lunch and I listen to the music I wrote the night before.
I can’t listen to music when I make love. It’s too distracting. I will be listening too much to the music and analyzing and studying it etc. Plus when I make love I want to give it my full, total and complete attention and concentration. Why would women think and ask to make love to «my own music»?
I hire people to paint etc. So I play the music they like.
I LOVE Sade. Please tell her for me.
I don’t play Chess or any board or card games. I play the «game of life & love» and my own music is the soundtrack for this.
Real boring smooth jazz to make me hurry up and get it over with.
I am too busy trying to get out to listen to any music at all!
There is not much of a «subway» in Los Angeles. With the earthquakes in Los Angeles I am too wary to take the subway etc. here. DON’T LISTEN to music in a subway anywhere else! Keep aware of the people around you!
Any kind of New Age music. And hope what those artists proclaim about what their Music can «do» is true and that my plants will be healed. I like all New Age music!
Or anything by Johnny Mathis or Barry White. And hours and hours of «making out» at parties or in girlfriends basements or in parents’ bedrooms. I once had to hide in the basement over night as the mother unexpectedly came home early. Her brother let me out in the morning when the mother left for work.
I don’t drink.
Patriotism of any kind makes me sad because it has created so many wars and divides people in all countries throughout history to such an enormous degree and will undeniably continue to for eternity.
No record ever «made me fall in love». Girls made me me fall in love. Each time she picked a song or a record that was «our song». I treasure each one.
My mother playing it.
I can’t remember very well. I think I was dead at my funeral, or, I was very, very tired.
As I lay in the grass at night, looking at the moon, holding the most beautiful blonde haired girl I have ever seen in my entire life at the National Music Camp, Interlochen, Michigan USA. Or a string quartet playing «When I Fall In Love» below my hotel room in Juan Le Pin, France with a beautiful Swedish girl I met who was hitch hiking across Europe. I found out later she was 15 years old. I had no idea.
Since there were many heartbreaks, there are too many songs.
Miles never wrote hardly any individual «songs». His songs were everything he played. Anytime as everything he played was so lyrical, melodic, simplistic, memorable & «perfect» etc. I am partial to «Bitches Brew» (pre-dating the electronica of today) and «Sketches Of Spain», a masterpiece of melodic improvisation, musical skill and emotional expression. If he wasn’t black there would be busts of him everywhere like there is of Bach.
