farewell to a giant

I won’t pretend to do justice to Jerry Wexler’s impact upon 20th century popular music, but I do feel compelled to note his passing with gratitude for the astonishing body of work his hand helped to craft and mold and bring to life.

My music collection runs rampant with what he touched. Yours probably does as well.

A long and incredibly fruitful life. Rock on, Jerry.

Music, food, dogs, current/political events, and visual arts combine to command much of the portion of attention not ceded to ecological concerns. Also Monty Python. I've sold a few pieces of original art and have made cab fare home playing saxophone. Native Mainah
