I don’t know if I have a theme song. Despite continual words to the contrary from certain friends, I do not exist in a movie, cartoon, tall tale, or other work of fiction.
But if I do have a theme song, it is probably this.
This song resonates with multiple parts of my soul as well as with my self image.
Furthermore, friends who know the Taj Mahal version say that his lyrics describe me.
But today I just feel like hearing the original. The instrumental. The Horace Silver version. And this performance is an excellent example of the fusion of the blues with Afro-Latin jazz.
