When I improvise,
at least with another horn player,
i lean toward folk melodies,
and human cries...
this is Albert Ayler...
Ornette's there too,
pushing me to play the melody
with every other melody.
Roswell Rudd,
Miff Mole,
Dave Dove...
A playfulness,
and a purpose.
To me it's obvious -
the clown
the prince
with one
mouth piece
one bell
one slide
the idea
that less
is always more
as long
as it ain't nothin'

as a player,
I know
I don't
live up
to ANY of my ideals

but I hold them
and I keep goin'
all Ben Franklin like...
