Most? That's hardly an accurate statement, whatever it's supposed to imply. It's true there were a lot of musicians who were hooked, but to say most of 50s and 60s jazz was produced on heroin would be a highly fallacious statement, if not ignorantly pandering stereotypes.

That said, if there was one label that catered to the drug addled jazz musician, it'd be Bob Weinstock's Prestige records...

Speak for yourself. Only way I learned my Elektron gear was by blazing up and getting stuck in for hours at a time.

Also, Cenk does, as he and I have discussed pot and other substances before.

Lol, a majority of the jazz standards played around the world every day were by monk, miles, coltrain, Parker - all users in their peak recording years.

Art Blakey and Horace silver may not have been known for drug use, nor a few others like Ahmad Jamal, though they have their stories about playing with the above list and they indicated drugs were everywhere.

See the Ken Burns jazz documentary to learn more about the era.

Going to start my wake and bake session today with the Moog D and TO TVS, after polka dots and moonbeams.

Like I said, there were a lot of users, but to say most of jazz in the 50s and 60s was produced on heroin is absurd.

Miles kicked his habit in 1954, Coltrane in 1957.

I see you made a list - I'll bet I can name way more jazz musicians who were clean as opposed to not. Want to try?

I don't think Marijuana is the design influence. People just love their happy lights and color designs.

Um miles kicked his habit a few times after that but anyways no worries, I get your point.

Try creating a jazz standards list from clean musicians, I am genuinely curious. I can name 10 by Miles and Monk in less than a minute probably.

BTW the Chet Baker take on polka dots and moonbeams was likely high as kite. And beautiful imho.

Sources? Miles kicked heroin for good in '54, that's why he fired Trane in the 55-57' quintet (though everyone in that band except Miles was hooked: Trane, Philly Joe, Mr PC and Red Garland)

It's true Miles had helluva cocaine habit in the 70s.

Most jazz standards are from the great American songbook, written by clean white folk, like Jimmy Van Heusen, who wrote Polka Dots and Moonbeams.

Also, Monk was not an addict. There was one famous incident when he and Bud Powell were in a car, and Monk took the fall for Bud when cops saw some dope Powell try to get rid of. Otherwise, no, Monk was clean...do you have other sources on this?

All that is true. Monk was barred from nyc performances over that incident and arguably should not be judged by the association. Bud Powell was beaten and never the same. Miles on coke is just a different type of addiction.

Anyways so most 50's-60's jazz was not on heroin, I'll agree to that and move on.

I don't think it matters who wrote poinciana, my favorite things or polka dots and moonbeams as I never heard the originals, I doubt most people have. Sort of like 'house of the rising sun' .

What does this have to do with synth design?

Maybe DSI will be inspired to release a new Prophet rev3 "Junkie XL" edition?

Wait a minute. In your examples you included a Greek, a British, a Belgian and two Japanese manufacturers. I see an obvious flaw in your theory.

I have a better explanation: They are designed for (and by) big kids. (Me included! )

It's not a party chemical, it's a deeply moving spiritual experience, some people never fully grasp what happens to them and they can't cope afterwards, others like myself would keep going back time and time again to explore more.
There is a bit of a contradiction in the above. The first quoted part is accurate. The second quoted part is subjective.

Partying while on DMT is crazy talk, maybe after 3 or 4 hours.

And it makes lots of delicious ear candy too.



Nothing sounds like a Ducati
Except for a Ferrari actually. They sound almost identical.
