about

Willeye (Willie Oliver) and Tom Ferguson jam weekly. We've started to record some of the more experimental side of what we do. Individual notes for each piece. Will be adding to it as we go. Guest guitarist Kiyoaki Kato sat in on the trio pieces. The trio is ten tracks recorded separately with all ten simulataneous on Trio Mistress (so titled to aggravate the sexism in language that tends to privilege the masculine).

Track Name: Duet II.
Venus in the east 5 a.m. feeling like I can get mine
condo out in Malibu weekend trips to Greek Corfu
fortifications thick and high

I intuite another way entertain another notion
roots deep in herstory tentative arrival

hunger in our home homeless in our house illiteracy and neglect
to sleep without a meal to bed without a blanket
horizon of deep hopelessness

I intuite another way entertain another notion
roots deep in herstory tentative arrival

future in the morning strike out for the new place
rising to the steepest incline
fasting for the family feasting on the wonder
dance in twin circles of light

I intuite another way entertain another notion
roots deep in herstory tentative arrival
Track Name: Duet III.
not all of us were gentle when the blue coats came
not all of them were killers the effect was the same
in the past true it was when the blue coats came
bringing devastation continuous today

who do you call the savage who laid the long trail of tears?

whirling dervish death when the blue coats came
harvesting the children the women and men
massacre without warning when the bluecoats came
martyr red early morning like buffalo from the train

who do you call the savage who laid the long trail of tears?

refrain:
winter and spring mountain stream birchbark boats on the great lake
summer and fall adobe wall prairie wind scented my way

the land that we walked when the blue coats came
no one of us could sell what was not in our name
spinning in the firmament when the blue coats came
spiritual spiraling ancient star plan

who do you call the savage who laid the long trail of tears?
Track Name: Trio 5.
In a building some occasion some procedure some event
in another something other an unnerving silence kept
still another random tenant such disturbing sentiment
at the grocer from a jokester something lighter in intent

some people can talk some people cannot

I may not understand you can't even say your name
but the place where we are standing has arisen from the flames
resurrected from the ashes once re-born and once re-made
once in death and once in darkness now in commerce so engaged
building warehouses of folly business towers stab the sky
disenchanted yet addicted to the plastic ash tray lie
from the yacht in Boston Harbor to the Kennebunkport place
the obsequious servant pentagon vast waste

in an orchard some occasion some procedure some event
in a wetland something other an unnerving silence kept
on a hilltop random tenant such a wary sentiment
at the shoreside at the high tide some fish laughter some fish spent

some people can talk some people cannot
Track Name: Trio 9.
