The Island Hideaway....


Listening to Mark Murphy right now..."The Red Clay" which I believe was written by Freddie Hubbard. On this album Mark Murphy sings and he's got David Sanborn, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker and Dave Matthews, are you kidding?

My favorite though is "Stolen Moments" By Oliver Nelson and lyrics by Mark Murphy.

This island hideaway belonged to a friend of mine. Stolen moments were every moment.

When Chet Baker sings "Let's Get Lost"  (written by Jimmy McHugh and lyrics by Frank Loesser) this is where he's talking about (a mindset of a place like this where the two of you can inhabit that oneness of serenity) and he knew it for sure.

Languid bodies, soft happy energy, perfect music, sun, shade, air, gourmet cooking of simple and healthy foods, knowledge of the tides, lush, sensual, timeless, sleeping like a contented child met the natural rhythm of the day and night.

I like the freshness in this piece.The sun was just peeking above the dawn horizon.

There's a lot of visual information but it doesn't compete it collaborates! It is 15 x 20 inches oil on canvas and available for $1,500.00 US plus handling and shipping.

"If I told you I loved you pretty baby would it it make up for what they say?" LOL!

More to come......
