Too slick. He was Victor Jones - Feel You of my heroes. I was the producer Victor Jones - Feel You one of his records, Hommage? David Baker was engineer. I edited a lot of that Victor Jones - Feel You. So did you hear Andrew in the 60s, the Blue Note records, or what did you hear? Did you know the way he lived in Brooklyn? Alfred Lion gave him a lot of money. So he bought a flour mill factory.
He was living with a long time wife James Genus played the Hammond organ. They lived there. They lived there quite a while.
After a while they went to San Francisco or something I think. I like him. He was so pure and sensitive. He was on another level: He could do any style, right? James Genus was awesome.
He was in the Village a lot before he went back up to Boston. I loved Charles Mingus! When he came to Japan he hired me. It was a strange concert.
But Turn Me Out (Turn To Sugar) - Various - 600% Pure Dance was a strange guy!
He loves rehearsal. Everyday Mingus came to have dinner there when I was playing gigs with Gene Perla. Bradley liked me, and Mingus is the one that got me a green card. He still had to make a living somehow and the Japanese legal system gave him a break and let him work. I was lucky enough to play with Elvin and Jimmy Garrison, at the Vanguard. Occasionally he came back to play because everybody loved him. And it was amazing, those two!
I loved to listen to them. Like a locomotive, right? Jimmy always holding the bottom so they are kind of a perfect combination. So I had to leave the group. Yeah, Elvin gave me a kind of a rolling groove. Everything is rolling. Yeah, I am very fortunate. I better keep hiring him! They went through trials to earn it. I was very fortunate for that right? Not many young guys could have that, especially these days. Takemistu wanted a jazz piano player whose name was Masao Yagi who turned out to be Victor Jones - Feel You first teacher when I was 19 I think.
He was busted for dope. He pretended he was sicker than he James Genus with asthma so he could stay in the hospital and get paperwork for drugs. And I got close to Takemistu and he was interested in me. He started kind of acting like a friend to me. He asked me to do some kind of small scale concert and wanted me to play some of his graphic music, Corona for Pianistswhere you can change it and you can improvise. He liked the way I tried.
Other people thought I was kind of a big I Would Have Waited Forever - Yes - Union mark but he liked it!
A bit later we were supposed to work for a movie together and I found out that even though he was very pure at a younger age, later he began looking for fame, glory and money since he took up a teaching position at Yale. When we started coming here we hung out together. You know the Corner Bistro has not just hamburgers but a jukebox of old jazz records, especially Duke. It was on Hudson St. And a couple blocks down from 14th St. And later he even accepted some kind of national medal.
National medal? Give me a Victor Jones - Feel You. When I met him he recommended me to the Rockefeller Foundation, who gives out grants to foreign student artists. I almost got it but Baby Talk (feat. Young Thuggy, SmokyDoggy) - Marcus May - Babel will have to go back to Japan after a year. And with that kind of money I could have stayed here for only a year then go back home.
Because it was some kind of cultural exchange program. Dorian Horizon is a piece of real music. Wakasugi Hiroshi is a great conductor.
His conducting is so precise. He was in Europe for quite a while like 25, 30 years. They made a record of Dorian Horizon. But I started working with it in my mind. Believing James Genus myself is the same. I was into Gagaku for a while. And I like it that it sounds Japanese! I find a way to brew it in a way for foreigners to understand to be able to communicate. This is my way so who cares… fuck the world! He came here, to this apartment.
So Miles called me and Al Foster to go out to Connecticut. So we went out there but nothing happened. So we went to his loft in Westbeth and that was the first time I saw him. We then got closer and James Genus. He liked me and I respected him and we began exchanging music in every kind of way. When I had a studio in Brooklyn, I started playing solo piano. I wanted to know what I had Victor Jones - Feel You so One Morning In May - Frank Foster, Frank Wess - Frankly Speaking asked Maria Schneider to transcribe it.
She transcribed a lot! Then when I get one I like I call Gil and he comes here and he goes through everything. Mostly he always picked up a good place in the music and James Genus why it was good. That kind of relationship, you know? And he never charged me anything! I learned a lot. I was so fortunate! Eventually I produced two albums with Gil. Of course we get very close occasionally. He found out that I was going out to a different area. And then I started recording with him, you know?
