I can’t believe I’m 62, I can’t believe Pat is 65, I can’t believe the AG is at least 20 years old and has evolved alongside the evolution of internet etiquette. I can’t believe some of the crap I used to write on here but I learnt far more from this internet community and it deepened my appreciation of music. I hardly ever read this and it’s years since I posted. It’s a long gap since Pat put any new music out. In a way that gap has been good it has made us all hungry. Very. And then the email came today and the long written piece by Pat is just so damned inspirational. His articulacy in framing what he wants to say is devastating. His values as a musician , artist , American and human are so noble. He has laid down how much the new music means to him from a personal ,technical and emotional perspective. The sample track sounds like this album will be a joyous voyage of discovery. I just love his stories of Ron Carter ( is there another release there ?!) and how the Miles Quintet methodology informs the approach of this new music. His line about November 8 2016 is so so welcome. Rightly naming that date as one of infamy alongside 9/11 and Pearl Harbour. I was living in America at the time waiting the birth one week later of my son. I cannot wait to hear what Meshell sings on that song. How long did we Dream of the Return. Pat, I already feel that Better Days are Ahead. Your renaissance has never been more welcome and needed.
