In uptown Kingston the old capital of the state of New York there t'was a space being remodeled and my pick up truck and I offered to cart away torn down neon lighting. There I met the carpenter, who ended up to be the manager of the "Uptown" which was to focus mainly on Jazz. Eager to play and record within this beautiful space, I booked the gig, prior to the official opening. The date of the recording was August 4th, 2002. Larry Jackson agreed to paint a large canvas behind the ensemble while we created the music. Pregnant mother, Elizabeth McGuffey composed a poem during the first set and performed these words in front of the band during the second; "Zephyr", which was the embryonic name of the baby, who does indeed display her musicality through a breath within the song or more like a hiccup! This was all of our message toward the war effort. "Habibi" translated as "my dear one" in Arabic. Speaking words of Love and peace, oppossed to Hate and war.
All of the players were very used to one another having played numerous gigs together, mostly in Manhattan. And previous to this date, there were numerous duos and trios of the same players taboot. Jonathan Townes on guitar, Don Pate on stand up bass & Daniel Carter on saxes, trumpet, flute and clarinet joined Doug Elliot; percussion/vocals/producer. Thanks to Chris Lelli who captured this performance through his recording equipment and microphones and mastering the work. Upside down, through the many choices of doorways we travel forward... Habibi.
