Hi all,
we all know that, sometimes good friends on tumblr say goodbye for a while or longer.
Gaetano’s last entry in his blog is from May 15th, so quite a while ago now. I look at his blog from time to time to see if anything happens. Nothing new so far. Okay, cheers from here, Gaetano.
The photo today is one of my favorites on his blog, good shot as always. Gaetano is good and doesn’t make a big deal about that, this is quite refreshing. On the blog there are lots of portraits from musicians from the jazz scene. I like that style. He concentrates on the person, the instrument, nothing else. Often we see the musician, a dark background and that’s it. The pics have all a monochrome touch, it fits to the music they make. At least my impression. It’s good when you found a style and you are happy with that. Portraits are difficult anyway, the reduction is the thing I like here. So quite instructive to take a look on the blog.
Marcus Miller, yes, one of the musicians I like since decades. Miles Davis sideman in the 80’s , played on hundreds of other records. It’s not so unusual to see him with a saxophone (on Miles Davis’ Tutu and his solo records he plays it also). Gaetano wrote me, it was backstage and Marcus played a bit saxophone to get warmed up. Fine, fine, fine.
Would like to see more, really.
Cheers, until next week

"Listen to me. I’m shy. I’m not stupid. I can’t meet people’s eyes. I don’t know if you understand what that’s like. There’s a whole world going on around me, I’m aware of that. It’s not because I don’t want to look at you. It’s that I don’t want to be seen."

“I’ve never been lonely. I’ve been in a room — I’ve felt suicidal. I’ve been depressed. I’ve felt awful — awful beyond all — but I never felt that one other person could enter that room and cure what was bothering me…or that any number of people could enter that room. In other words, loneliness is something I’ve never been bothered with because I’ve always had this terrible itch for solitude. It’s being at a party, or at a stadium full of people cheering for something, that I might feel loneliness. I’ll quote Ibsen, “The strongest men are the most alone.” I’ve never thought, “Well, some beautiful blonde will come in here and give me a fuck-job, rub my balls, and I’ll feel good.” No, that won’t help. You know the typical crowd, “Wow, it’s Friday night, what are you going to do? Just sit there?” Well, yeah. Because there’s nothing out there. It’s stupidity. Stupid people mingling with stupid people. Let them stupidify themselves. I’ve never been bothered with the need to rush out into the night. I hid in bars, because I didn’t want to hide in factories. That’s all. Sorry for all the millions, but I’ve never been lonely. I like myself. I’m the best form of entertainment I have. Let’s drink more wine!”Charles Bukowski
