1. Check out the Asco retrospective and get completely excited. Scroll down and watch the Willie Herrón video. His voice sounds like someone I know, but I just can't place it yet. I am now closing my eyes and listening, though the person still does not come to me. As my homeboy, Alex, would say: mmmmmmmmmmmm.
2. Check out Ambrose Akinmusire play Miles Davis. I've written about him before--his work is amazing, and I can't wait to hear his Miles interpretations.
3. Buy new Rigoberto Gonzalez poetry collection Black Blossoms.
