Andy Summers: One Train Later

The Taoists described the act of meditation as facing an unsculpted block of time, and the musician as he extemporizes creates a dream, a suspended state.

Still, he recounts a beautiful incident with the cleaning lady who listens as he plays some Charlie Parker improv on his acoustic in his hotel room. “She sits quietly on the floor and closes her eyes, listening intently. It is akin to playing to a deer in the forest, a tremulous moment when you might easily scare the creature away.” Yes, that’s it – the Poet speaks.

Lawrence Russell @ CultureCourt reviews Andy Summers’ book. The review is brilliant and I ordered the book already.
