Seth Alexander Presents at the Racer Sessions this Sunday!
We're thrilled to bring saxophonist Seth Alexander to the Racer Sessions this Sunday. Seth is a longtime member of the Seattle creative music scene, and a player that a number of our Racer Sessions founders met while at the University of Washington. Seth's unique sound and fluid melodicism in his improvisatory work are always highlights for listeners. He'll be joined on stage by the outstanding bassist Birch Pereira and master drummer/percussionist Greg Campbell. Read Seth's piece below for a window into his work this week!
Check Out My Melody
I'm not a regular competitor, first rhyme editor
Melody arranger, poet, etcetera
Extra event, the grand finale-like bonus
I am the man they call the microphonist
With wisdom, which means wise words bein' spoken
Too many at one time watch the mic start smokin'
I came to express the rap I manifest
Stand in my way and I'll veto on the word's protest
MC's that wanna be best, they're gonna
Be dissed if they don't get from in front of
All they can go get is me a glass of Moet
A hard time, sip your juice and watch a smooth poet
I take 7 MC's put 'em in a line
And add 7 more brothas who think they can rhyme
Well, it'll take 7 more before I go for mine
Now that's 21 MC's ate up at the same time
Easy does it, do it easy, that's what I'm doin'
No fessin', no messin' around, no chewin'
No robbin', no buyin', bitin', why bother
This slob'll stop tryin', fightin' to follow
My unusual style will confuse you a while
And if I was water, I'd flow in the Nile
So many rhymes you won't have time to go for yours
Just because of applause I have to pause
Right after tonight is when I prepare
To catch another sucka duck MC out there
'Cause my strategy has to be tragedy, catastrophe
And after this you'll call me your majesty
Yes, my melody
