What happens when a jazz purveyor pores over the archival brilliance of C&W?
 
A jazz cat with an admission: Country Western music is a pastiche of life's turbulence and our effort to uncover and experience a prevailing calm. The story telling brings a familiar and solidarity among us regardless of race, ethnicity, difference. Miles loves Willie Nelson. Its the way Nelson phrased, his timing, clarity, and style of telling. 
 
I love Merle Haggard, Patsy Cline, as much as Bill Withers, Roberta Flack, and Ray Charles. They all explore the emotive nature of C&W with aplumb. And there are enough " others" to bring this music to the needle drop
 
This music stands for and celebrate the best and highest resolution obtained through story telling. A narrative of love, struggle, life and lessons. It elevates and teaches. Its a folk music - The Blues. My heart C&W heart.
