François famously influenced Pablo’s paintings. When asked if he had an influence on her art he said, oh no, she had a much greater influence on me. I recently scored an old book of François Gilot’s paintings of Greek gods, and the text was written by, guess who, Ariana Huffington of Huffington Post fame. A steal, used online. Wonderful job, marrying music and art, a very enjoyable post.

Hypnotic. Love it and love the Paloma inspiration.

“I need the composition of these reductions to be very separate and delineated when I am envisioning the music. Does that make sense to anyone besides me?”

It makes complete sense to me!

Where do we find hats like that? Awesome beat too!

[It’s the guitar. Or maybe the sweet feathery hat.] For me, it's definitely the hat--and also the guitar. But that hat! I love this groove and it was fun learning a bit more about your mysterious past as a swingman!

Delightful, Peter — the production on this one is tasty. Great work as always!

Love everything about this. The inspiration train, of course (which we are all passengers--or are we the caboose?), but especially the muted (gated?) bass which sounds like a tuba in my headphones.

I love the educational component of these beatductions and this one’s knocked my brain’s socks off. Also the explanation of a fascinating component of your process linking the reduction to the beat and thereby having to exclude or differently delineate elements of the reduction in order to facilitate the beat. Amazing and yes it totally clicked with me. And last but not least the bluesy riff. So great as usual
