A Malian's Musings about Music and Mali…

“Blue in Green” by Miles Davis

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately.  

You know: about the “big” questions.  What’s next? How to approach that potentially life-altering decision, and of course the biggest of them all: what does it all mean?

Such an exercise is less about finding exact answers than it is about developing self-awareness.  After all, as James Arthur Ray pointed out: “The journey of true success and lasting leaderships begins with the inward journey to the soul.”

What’s a journey without music to accompany you? Better yet, what’s a moment of reflection without Jazz?  

As I take the road on this “inward journey”, I’m bringing along Mr Miles Davis on the trumpet, Mr John Coltrane on the saxophone, Mr Wynton Kelly on the piano, Mr Paul Chambers on the bass and Mr Jimmy Cobb on the drums.

Good travel companions indeed.
