Ariel Pinks Haunted Graffiti Before Today

Technical terms in music baffle me because I m not a musician but I am somewhat emotional. I can muster a tear drop as easily from a soaring orchestral ensemble as from a simple piano melody. What matters to me most is whether a particular piece moves me or not. Of all our Jazz composers, Duke Ellington moved me most.

Classical music critics compared his music to that of Ravel, Stravinsky and Franz Liszt.
