You Live and You Learn

2:24 PM

Growing up, I only listened the music my brother listened to. Funny thing is I never took the time to branch out into different aspects of music and see what else was out there until I got older and my older brother was no longer around to influence my musical taste. Without him I soon discovered Miles Davis, Minnie Riperton, Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Prince,Etta James,Billie Holiday,Ella Fitzgerald and many more. Now that’s not to say that I hadn’t already heard of these people or even listened to them, but I never really took the time to hear what they were saying or actually feeling the affect this music would have on me. I soon learned that where music was concerned I was extremely ignorant, but I also learned that it’s never too late to learn your history and embrace it. Music is my vacation it is my escape from everything that bothers me, music is my safe place.
