A Classic Jazz Tune

by: Les Carpenter
Rational Nation USA
Birthplace of Independent Conservatism

Again I find myself on a late Saturday night, following a fine dinning experience and an incredibly good Portuguese wine, contemplating the political events of this past week. The exercise at best has me scratching my balding head. For there is no rational explanation for Barrack Hussein Obama, Newt Gingrich, or the rest of the political hacks be they republican or democrat.

So I hope you will forgive me for my momentary inability to offer my usual political insight and reasoned independent conservative commentary. In its place I offer an American Jazz Classic performed by Miles Davis in his 1958 rendition of the Gershwin tune Summertime.

Listening to great jazz sure beats politics! Well, sometimes anyway.


  1. A genius on a par with Picasso, Mussorgsky, and Baryshnikov. I especially loved his 60s ensemble with Tony Williams, Herbie Hancock, etc..

  2. Ah yes, Herbie Hancock. Another musician f imense talent and "musical vision."
