In the premiere episode of “Notes from the Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame“, a collaborative series from Quoted Studios and Jazz at Lincoln Center, an animated Miles Davis spoke about sketching, flavoring his music with a major note and his need to constantly make music his music in a lost interview with journalist Ben Sidran in 1986.
The main thing that I love that comes before everything, even breathing, is music. That’s it. I would just want to be dead if I couldn’t create. If I couldn’t create, there would be nothing for me to live for. It’s selfish, I know, but geniuses are selfish.
When an incredibly compassionate man named Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua noticed that the animals of Tsavo West National Park were completely without water due to extreme drought conditions in Kenya, he began making long daily trips in a large water delivery truck to replenish empty waterholes. The park is home to a large variety of wild animals with whom Mwalua has formed a special bond. The animals pose no threat to Mwalua as they seem to understand what a heroic, selfless thing he is doing for them. While he has vowed to never let the animals go thirsty, Mwalua is unemployed and suffers from kidney failure. Mwalua’s friend Cher Calloway is raising money through GoFundMe to help pay for the water, gasoline and the tireless work involved in ensuring the animals survive.
It is now very dry in Tsavo and water has become a very precious commodity because there is a shortage of water due to lack of rain. We are not expecting any rain until November and this has got us all very worried of loosing many animals from antelopes to elephants if nothing is done very urgently. …We will be renting water trucks to deliver 12,000 liters of water at least 4 trips a week. The distance is 45 Kilometers to where water would normally be to save these animals and we will distribute it to 2 different locations to ease the congestion. Remember it is not only elephants we will be saving. Each tank will cost $250USD. Every donation no matter the size is greatly appreciated and thank you for your support.

The National Geographic series ORIGINS: The Journey of Humankind explores the beginning of humanity and the modern world. The eight-part series will premiere on March 6, 2017, and it was created by John D. Boswell of Melodysheep and is hosted by Jason Silva.
Two years ago I conceived of ORIGINS as a new kind of series that tells the story of how humankind came to be. The journey to create this show has been the most epic one of my life.
We are giving viewers a chance to relive moments in history that changed humanity – from the discovery of fire to the space race. 30,000 years of history in 8 one-hour episodes: Fire, Medicine, Communication, Money, War, Transportation, Shelter, and Exploration.
I had the honor of being creator, composer and editor for the series. Extremely stoked to share what’s in store.
