Jackie McLean on Mars

It’s great to rediscover this remarkable if modest documentary of Jackie McLean by Ken Levis. Levis tells this amazing musician’s story in Jackie’s own words. For those who never had the honor of knowing this man, Jackie’s commitment, intelligence, work ethic and humor shine though. This captures him during his transition from New York City to Hartford, Connecticut and from performing artist to educator.

This a great little film. Well worth 30 minutes of your time.  Sharp exchange of views with one of his students about Sun Ra towards the end.

Departures

A hot summer night,
the sound of rain in the courtyard.
A satin breeze sways the curtains.

She wrote
‘Gently I open
my silk dress and float alone
on the orchid boat. Who can
take a letter beyond the clouds?’ *

All those years ago

And he wrote
'A picture held us captive and we
could not get outside it.’

When the winter came
she wrote
'I put on my new quilted robe
sewn with gold thread.’ **

Is that how you saw it?
Passing a mirror in a dusky corridor
—that face, the tilt of those shoulders.
Or in the bright light of morning
the details of your face in that mirror
—a picture, as though set, that maps
the wear of years, dreams,
that this is where we’ve come to,
and the future best left to itself.

The letter will reach the other side of the mountains,
clouds will roll back clear of the summits.
What was needed was done, but never done,
it’s never done.

Plodding along the mountain path—
drifts of rain, streams sweeping across the path,
cloud so low you can barely see the path
as you stumble on loose rock.

How to imagine an orchid boat?
It gets harder. But days come and go,
the sun comes out and everything seems to sparkle
and the letter spirals away.

The picture in the mirror seemed so real,
though only caught that imprisoning moment.
A golden leaf in autumn spins into a dark river
where the currents dance it underwater back and forth, side to side.

Without thinking
I step aboard the orchid boat,
the feel of silk
carrying me beyond all mirrors.

Jefferson Airplane - We Can Be Together from Volunteers

Tonight’s Weird Music Dream was turning up to my shared studio and finding two oversized duck decoys on my desk singing this song.

Nevermind …. this was a great way of hearing this again. I loved this song and this album when I was a kid. Jorma Kaukonen’s biting guitar, Jack Casady’s thunderous bass, and the wonderful vocal combination of Marty Balin, Paul Kantner and Grace Slick. A real anthem.

Also, somehow seeing a bunch of hippies lost in music dancing around in a field is kind of - well - charming.

And yes, I had a picture of Grace stuck on the inside of my school desk.

And here’s Rodrigo Amarante playing two marvelous songs, “Irene” and “The Ribbon,” while walking around Paris. He even throws in a Dylan impersonation in between songs for good measure.
