A Big Reason for My Life

“People in love look into each other’s souls,

‘Thank you.’ I thank them. It’s a marriage.”

An Opera in the Cotton Fields

“I used to work in the cotton fields a lot when I was young.
There were a lot of African Americans working out there.

all out there singing,
and it was like an opera in the cotton fields,
and I can still hear it in the music that I write and play today.”
