Monet and Picasso Connect the Dots

A la "Meditations," Ben's John Coltrane to Finn's Pharaoh Sanders. The old guard, still avant, meets the new. Co-exists with. Harmonizes with. Classically radical next to shattering new primitive instinct.

You look retarded? I look violated, beaten, barely breathing. Having shown the way, I give thanks. But this is the new. A derivation, to be sure. But still, technically, a revolution. From dissonance to duck sounds: you shook your head, your face, your skin...They shake me.
