Left Alone

Eric Dolphy did wonders with this tune, but I kind of like this version with the sharp contrast between McLean's attack and Waldron's comping, as if to say the song both is and is not a minor blues.

I've left the blog alone quite a bit lately while I've been pursuing math—I hadn't studied math properly since grade school and now I will need to pass a calculus class for my biology degree, so every day it's math, math, math, math and math. It's all going swimmingly but I've let my readings in philosophy slip while I cram for exams. I've no intention of giving up the blog, or philosophy.

Hello! Thanks for posting this wonderful ballad by one of my favourite musicians and my
teacher Mal Waldron.
I've recorded a live version of his song "All Alone".
If you like it, you may add it to your blog.
You can hear it on my page, or follow its link on MySpace:
Best wishes!
