Bitterly chomping down to the bone, my god man, don’t you have pity? You horrible bastard, forsaken son of her majesty. She flung onto us you’re misery, through cosmetic actions your born, chaotically mixed with deviant precision; violence rapped in a northern storm. Joyous I wonder, are you full of glee? Does your raise of terror give you pleasure? Do these deeds please your mother?
On the twilight of the year you arrive with your silent death, little seen nor heard just your… Continue

Astral choirs chime beneath furious yet prosaic percussion, while brass as soft as palm trees on the sea of a distant planet chants. Soon the surreal Sci-fi voice of Will Alexander, begins to encant his sophisticated language of dreams while the solar brass charts of Ghasem Batamuntu and the Nu Nova Compound's ensemble rips a hole in space. North American realms of New England, New France, Nova Scotia, New Spain have long ruled, now New Afrika has its place in the mix. That all this is beauty… Continue

Sorry I disappeared there for a minute, I didn't really disappear you know, I actually was hiding in the hills of Northern California between the lighthouse and the redwoods, working on my new tunes. I did some wonderful gigs with some phenomenal players, my West Coast drummer Chris Campbell put together a great quartet for me, he actually met the piano player, Rich Cooper at a house party at Alice Walker's house. They played so well and though I did very much miss my players here, it was nice… Continue

I was asked recently by a young musician how I could still make a living doing music after all these years. I thought about it and realized my secret to continue to gig 5,6 or9 tiumes a week. It was simple ,I give back. The more benefits and freebies I do, I more work I can get. To think about helping those that need a smile, a little hope and plenty love.
My cameraman ,producer for my film projects in Pittsburgh, Victor, one of the best in the world. He has worked Hollywood for… Continue

On the eve of Change.
At last, At last. At long last! Finally the people of this Great Nation are coming to bare wittiness to the unadulterated power we gave away to the few. Realizing this power has imposed a pain filled blow to the whole of our land. We have begun to awake, shaking off the drunken haziness like a bad dream that haunts our thoughts. The clear images of our selfishness have come to be realized. Now in this monumental storm we decide to fight and righteously so! We… Continue

To Whom It May Concern, those in the dark dead of night, acting with the care and honor of an American soldier standing hard and right… To those dug in -waiting for the command to defend, holding tight the dreams of a Nation faced with fanatical nightmares, you fight. Far from your bed, void of those comforts you protect unselfishly. You are our hero’s fighting for this Flag, protecting our beliefs from the tyranny of another. We thank you. To all those that walked in the shadow of death… Continue

“Change by other means.”
I love people, I love change, and as I mix these two important ingredients together I hear the most amazing stories. I headed to the local nation of Wal-Mart to stock my cold room for the winter and ran face first into a woman that changed history. As I stood waiting for the wife searching for fabric to make her famous bag keepers, I noticed an older lady short in height, gray in hair, gentle in nature. I watched her and listened to her talk about when she… Continue

My sweet china doll, my extraordinary dream, my amazing love , you, softly rapped in a beautiful soft brown sheen.
The passion of my heart, the reason for my thoughts, you are my one true queen. Without you my mind would surely fail heart black and thick, my dreams dark and pointless, lost without you in worship.
You’re purr of approval is my destination your soft brown eyes give me clues to its direction, finding that love in your glance is my primal… Continue
