"That was my gift . . . having the ability
to put certain guys together
that would create a chemistry
and then letting them go;
letting them play what they knew,
and above it." - Miles Davis

I wonder what was the place where I was last night,
All around me were half-slaughtered victims of love,
tossing about in agony.
There was a nymph-like beloved with cypress-like form
and tulip-like face,
Ruthlessly playing havoc with the hearts of the lovers.
God himself was the master of ceremonies in that heavenly court,
oh Khusro, where (the face of) the Prophet too
was shedding light like a candle.
by Amir Khusrau (translated from Farsi (Persian))
