Sometimes when I’m working on a piece I just don’t know when or how to stop. This is a 178-track (and counting), monster, 6 minute, epic piece I’ve been working on about, of all things, vegetables.
I’m sure we’ve all made this decision/mistake before.
Anyway it’s moments like this I think about a quick Miles Davis/John Coltrane conversation (that probably never really happened):
Davis was questioning the increasing length of Coltrane solos, and 'Trane answered, "I don't know how to stop.” To which Miles quips, “Take the fucking horn out of your mouth.”
I don’t do it as much as I used to, but I gotta remember to remind myself to "take the horn outta my mouth."
This concludes Devin's Corner.
