The weather this weekend is what set the tone for me. There was something about the mix of humidity and heat that just rippled out summertime. And to double your pleasure of the sultry delivery of that mood by Miles Davis & Gil Evans here are two takes from the same August 4th, 1958 recording session.
And while there may not be any motion to watch in this video, the creator did add a subtly changing visual element.
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
