By the Mighty Mumford

Nice smooth and youthful legs,

For which a girl watcher begs..

Appear in the summer

On visions of wonder,

Dream on, you old eggs!

AZIZA » Aziza

Jazz You Too

The group’s name comes from the mythology of Dahomey, the African kingdom that would become Loueke’s homeland of Benin. Aziza is the god of inspiration, a small, elusive woodland creature that lends its magic to artists and hunters in the woods. It’s an apt name for a quartet that so deftly blends the spiritual and the earthy, the organic and the mystical.

Starkult Promotion

Chris Potter: tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone

Lionel Loueke: guitar, vocals

Eric Harland: drums

Thursday’s Doors ~ the little door “tale”


I asked the three cousins

whose names begin with M

Micah, Makyah and Marley,

(Boy: age 8- Girl: age 6 – Girl: age 8 1/2)

“Who could live in this wee, tiny home?”

Right away, quick as a wink:

Micah thinks the person is, “an elf

who likes to play with Legos.”

Next, a thoughtful answer:

Makyah says, “It’s a girl bear who

isn’t very old, maybe six years old?”

(This happens to be her own age.)

We kept on walking in silence,

to the brand new playground at

back of St. Mary’s Catholic Church.

Marley is the oldest, going to be nine

years old in November, said as she

was swinging high as she could,

“I need time to think!”

She’s quite the dramatic queen

who will occasionally set the scene.

We sat down at the picnic table

while I passed cookies out.

Ready for a story?

As told…
