How 3 Simple Phone Alarms Changed My Health, Wealth, and Relationships with Eric Partaker
"Eric say what's up to fire nation and sure something interesting about yourself that most people don't know aright. Well, yeah. What's up fire nation how excited to be here? This is this is an easy one about ten years ago. I was boarding a return flight to London, and shortly after the cabin doors closed I sent something wasn't right and as the plane descended I had a lot of pressure building in my chest. It soon became pain. Went through the my left arm my whole left arm went completely ice cold by colleague. Next to me he touched my my arm and I remember he said Jesus feels like it's been hanging in a meat locker. Let's Yeah I said too. I said to my I said Lewis. Like something's up man this. This is I'm scared Can You? Can you get some help? And? Louis jumps over runs to a flight attendant. And flight attendant comes overseas on I'm sweating at this point you know feeling really nauseous and she she asks us there's a doctor on board and. at I'm just you know feeling worse and worse doctor comes running over luckily I. Hopefully, there's always a doctor aboard flight nominee knocking lucky. There was one for me he came over. Took my vital signs and he just said immediately he is he said we got to land the plane like a sap i. think he's having a heart attack and when I when I heard those words, you had a heart attack. When you're when you're thirty, five, thousand feet up in the air these are not the words you want to hear. No. You're about as far away from help as you can get and I remember when that plane. On the movies when they talk about something like feeling in an eternity like life is going in slow motion I mean that was exactly what it felt like. Because at the sense, it probably didn't take that long but it felt like forever and I was just terrified on the way down that. My heart was gonNA stop completely I kept having to stop my head like James I'm going to get so close to say the in it's going to be lights out and obviously. I mean, you'd be an absolute magician if you had invited someone to your show who had actually died, right so That wasn't the case we a pain emergency lands. By the way out of a quick side note here I was just too curious to not Google this so. Apparently, it costs about one hundred and fifty thousand dollars to emergency land applying for the airline and I think my ticket costs like one, hundred, fifty bucks. So they did it. They did really poorly with me on that flight man, but you know what I will say to make you feel better if you need it, they likely have insurance for that. So the people who got screwed are the people who should get screwed, which are the insurance companies. Are True. So so plane touches down -mergency response team Russia's on board takes me into a waiting ambulance administered nitrates right away to open up the arteries. And then the ambulance sped off to a local hospital. Did you even know where you are like? Did you even know like what city you're in? No, I had no idea. Yeah. I knew when I got into the ambulance because everyone was speaking trench. Man Because that's the thing about flying over Europe. You're like I I literally have no idea where we're going to descend so that Eric is super interesting my friend I'm gonNA share something else that people don't know about you actually as you might be moving to Puerto Rico at some point in the future the I'll day unconscious. So that'd be super cool as well. So man what a way to kick off this interview of three simple phone alarms that changed Eric's health wealth and relationships, and we already can see that he needed a little change in his health. So talk to us about these three phone alarms that are going to elevate our health work in home fronts. So this is dead simple. And it was driven by that story. I just shared 'cause I have been obsessed with achievement prior to that point for ten years while at Skype Bill we we sold skype to Ebay I two thousand five for about four billion dollars at McKinsey and company. And then a few of my own businesses, but it was like achievement at all costs, right? So including the cost of my health and relationships and And after that, I need any something had to change a new. I needed some some balance and I literally I took my phone one day and I said, okay I'm GONNA put in some alarms and I'm going to label each alarm to reflect what like the best version of me would look like to power the relevant segment of the day and so let me give an example and when you're setting alarm on your phone, for example, if you have, I found, you go into the alarm. And you'll see a section called label and you can actually name the alarm whatever you want, and if you have android, you can go in it's called name you can label it whatever you want so. So for years. Now at six thirty, am the first alarm goes off and it says world fitness champion and I'm not a will fit as champion I never will be but like that's not the point, the point is that for me, that's the phrase that expresses my best on the health front, which is one of the key three areas you get your health, your wealth, or if you want to refer to it as work and your relationships.

So we don't really know much about their relationship or like I said her what caused her passing not long after Patty died his sister Abigail also lost her husband. So from that point on, James took care of Abigail and her children for the rest of their lives for got married again, this time on December tenth eighteen o five, his bride was Charlotte Van Dien who was twenty at that time. There was another death in the family in May of the following year. James's mother. Margaret died at the age of eighty four when James Charlotte welcomed their first child in September of eighteen o six they named Margarita an honor, the deceased matriarch of the family. James in Charlotte had nine children total. There was Charlotte who died in Childhood Harriet James Junior Robert Bridges Sarah Louisa, Mary, Isabella Thomas Willing, and William. Yet many of those names you will recognize because he often would named people after patrons, mentors, people who were important to him and his family. Fortunes business model as he ran the sail loft in support of his growing family was really progressive. He hired both black and white employees to work in his loft, and there was no separation along race lines and his business flourished for the first nine years so much so that he was sometimes referenced in the press and travelogues as this example of black prosperity in Philadelphia. Of course, ignores the fact that like he was a complete outlier. They kind of used him like, no, you could have the dream fulfilled and it's like well, yes. But one dream like right we're a lot of people not given the the sort of lucky breaks that he had had been the embargo act of eighteen seven really meant that trade came to a standstill. So ships sales were not in demand anymore things picked back up eighteen hand when the foreign trade restrictions were lifted and then the war of eighteen twelve once again put everything into a perilous state particularly during a blockade of the Delaware, river. Though trade continued through Philadelphia as supplies removing inland of business owners just didn't make it through with their livelihood intact James was as one biographer put it luckier or perhaps more prudent than many. He did experience some losses during all of this economic upheaval but he was really careful with his business and he stayed financially stable and he was able to expand his fortunes. Once all of that instability had kind of settled down a little bit. He also weathered a real estate bubble in the city and panic in eighteen nineteen and like his father.

Historical record you're reading and which one any given individual in that family favored although they were black James had an aunt who purchased enslaved people. This was not exactly uncommon in Philadelphia. And other cities in slave labor was so much a part of the cultural and economic norms at the time that almost anyone with any kind of financial stability or wealth was probably involved in enslavement back to the relationship between Robert Bridges and James. Corden bridges even purchased a house in James Thornton's name and he trained to become an expert designer and sailmaker. This was all pretty unusual for a number of reasons other than the ones that we've just mentioned first Ford was the only free. Person Working in the sail loft other black men worked there but they were all enslaved additionally Robert Bridges and his wife Jemima had children of their own and if things had progressed in the usual way, one of the bridges sons would have been the one taking over the family business but that did not happen in seventeen eighty, six bridges promoted jams, Fortin to foreman. And then he was made junior partner and in part this was Robert Bridges who had done very well for himself over the years He had made additional money in private tearing by a purchasing private tearing even though he himself did not ever sale on them. He was kind of Angling for his sons to become merchants and not tradesman he wanted to push them.

We don't know whether she was ever enslaved. No biography there yet the background is not there. It's interesting because she lived for quite a while and lived with James, but it was all of her story is pretty much focused on on James's story, and so we don't know what her personal life was like before she became a wife and mother. But as a child James Sometimes accompanied his father when he went to bridges shop to work. In the sail loft and James would have been given assorted tasks, they're like sweeping and sometimes sorting scraps for potential recycling to see if they were big enough to use for a patch, he also made prepared beeswax for the sale makers to run their sewing thread through but eventually young James did learn to so sales and the idea in all of this was that James was going to be.

This was all very deliberately done by his father Thomas Thinking about his family's financial stability also went way beyond teaching James Trade.

"I'm they probably should. I don't think they do so. You know. There's that I mean the fact is. Don't know people. WHO HAVE! An enormous amount of influence in terms of. Our sway. In the world. Don't really think about how. How far they words are reaching the clever ones that some of the evil ones do. They figured it out, you know. But. Look. The problem is that if you want to change society your words. Your deeds have got to reach deep into the bowels into the guts of whatever organization is involved so that the producer of you know podcast fifty nine and the producer of CNN you know works that might night shifts in the produce of Fox News whoever? Is getting the message, so they don't. Follow the crowd and just do the same story that the other guy did. I mean that's really the problem I mean it's very unusual for me to get ask these kinds of questions that you're asking because a lot of the people who create the news or who follow the news I just don't do their homework. I've done many. Many not does hundreds of interviews oftentimes people just not prepared. Data's don't do the homework you know. When I was at Columbia one of the things that they've really been forced on us was they made us get ready for interviews? If you weren't ready for interviews and you brought your story back and it wasn't good. They descent you out. Made you do it again? Of course she didn't like it, but you did it. You know nowadays I you know I'm interview by doesn't does the journalists who oftentimes it just don't even do the homework I understand you don't have time to read the book Talk Understand, but you can tell a lot of monitoring the homework out in the real world you know in the you know with the with the fifteen minute bit with someone takes a bit a piece of Shit. Excuse my language and just blows it up into nothingness. That's passed around the world. Two hundred million kids in the world go to bed hungry every night. His millions, I go to bed. Hungry. Overnight in this country will argue about some tweet of feet or something. I. Don't WanNa. Hear that. You know look. You're going to be a reporter. Do the job if you're GONNA win with the Mantle of First Amendment. The fourteenth amendment is that so many people died for. When you suit up, you better suit up all the way. Put socks on and push his sword on. Go out there in. Do the job. Don't do a half way job. Doesn't help. That's why Donald. Trump became president because that's one reason. Is Report. Is The you know they weren't enough of a sounded hitting it hard. I'll tell you something else. That was interesting. I was thinking about this yesterday. Since I'm blowing off so much steam, I don't know why. But there was A. Princess Di was killed. And was she died. She died in a car accident. They know and they will pictures of her. You know what really people were yelling and screaming about photographers took our picture and one of the photographer, said something I'll never forget. He said I went angle to take pictures of the civil war there and nobody bought them. He said people buying pictures of the Angolan war. The winning goal I would I would be shooting those pictures. They don't buy those pictures. These are the kinds of pictures they buy. So as much as we want. A Yellen ran screaming about Donald Trump and all that you know. Whatever else did you know we? We have problems with by you. Know the place. Of The militarization of Police Department the answer begins right at home with all of us. In know what do we do who we pay attention to? What do we? What do we support? Have we voted those kinds of questions? A lot of us. You know a moving in that direction break. I'm delighted about that. And, that's really doesn't have anything to. My generation is done. That's really coming from. Young People You know yeah now. I completely agree Adam inspired to see that and also agree that. He kind of comes full circle to. The beginning of conversation where you know so much of the of the answer is a return to understanding you know family. However, you define that in community, however, you define that and the roles that we all have and. You know the freedom that we had and the by actually stepping into a place of share responsibility, whether it's with your biological family or chosen family, your religious family, your local community, whatever it is and I feel like we're. I don't know if you're seeing the same thing, but I feel like we're seeing people start. To, look back at that and say we need to reexamine this and maybe a bit of a reclamation of that as more of like a governing part of life I. Agree I think that that's what we are seeing, and it's I never thought I'd live long enough to see it just like I thought I'd never live long enough to see someone like Donald. Trump became president or Barack Obama for that matter. I mean I'm happy. That this is how yes, this is awfully terrible. It's just very painful. and. What one of the things that that comes from being? You know a so-called Christian and being involved searches that you do understand that there are lots. There's lots that you can't control. But witnessing this makes me happy. Makes me feel like you know. God is still on the throne. because. These kids these young people. They don't have to do this and they're doing it and look. There's a lot of ragging this to it. But. It doesn't matter men the ship the someone has got the wheel. They and they are spinning the wheel and the ship is turning is not. You can't stop this kind of thing. It's kind of like the Vietnam War in the net little tiny island that just you really just couldn't be taken over I mean you can't stop it when people spirit of people is greater than anything. Is Greater Than Evil and it's doesn't need a lot of fuel to run. Evil and hatred is like a diesel engine that just gulps fuel. You have to just constantly poor. You got to keep that fire going, but when something is propelled by love and decency and honor and justice true justice. It, doesn't it? Could the the caucus on popcorn?.

"The link in the show notes. I'm fascinated that You mentioned earlier like big part of the process of writing is observing is learning to see and as. And is capturing. What makes you go back and if and if you have all these and sort of like constantly observing consolation capturing. What makes you know when? Something you've written down some. You've seen something you. You've observed. needs to be expanded on needs to actually turn into something bigger, or is it just a feeling? You just start building around it and it it. It tells you. A good question I'm not really sure usually, if if it moves from if the carrots is can move easily from one room to another. Then you know that you're you're onto. you struck.

Because there are so many ingredients in that one small piece that you. You know you can. You can pretty much. Guarantee that you're going to be. Two, hundred fifty to three hundred pages and before. Before you know. Look I have plenty of books sitting around not planning, but enough story sitting around that have not been finished. And they haven't been finished because they just don't have the power. Of My. My respect and adoration of the characters and love for the story. and. It's not the wall that I'm able to push against in order to make the story happened there. And I guess really to make the story happening. I mean it's interesting. I feel like that wall has to be there. What you have to write, you know you have to have. You have to really want to let people know about. You want to tell him something. You want to share something with people that helps them. In your merchant, you just want to give away the goods. It's nice that people pay for, but you. You give it away if you could. Kind of preacher. You're kind of. Canterbury kind of. Singing Christie adjust trying to. Get people to listen because. The end result is good if they if they do. They look in the right direction. Yeah, it's interesting because you're I, know we re taught for a heartbeat about the fact that you're teaching music to kids now, also Are you still teaching writing Nyu Yeah Yeah because I'm curious because I'm. I'm fascinated by if somebody comes into a room with you what they're looking for what they think they're looking for what they think they need to actually step into this place of being a writer versus what you really feel matters. While the young right is that I need to nyu really wonderful people first of all I don't teach like honors classes. super-duper writers who are trying to be. You know rightfully super-duper publications or magazines I basically whoever signs up the first people sign up with it. Courses limit are the ones in the class, and then I just make them right. Make them write about themselves and I teach I mostly focused on structure. You know I mean because you can't really unless you can get time and place. Said sent it in your story. Nobody you just blogging. You know no matter how good you are as a writer in terms of. Like. How fashion on the Hundred Yard Dash, a book is a marathon. So you can run hundred yards and beat everybody else, but after hundred yards. I'm just GONNA. I'll be running backwards and I'll go leave you behind because you don't know how to do it. Structure so I talk about structure quite a bit and I make them write. A sentimental and make them right I. Don't talk that much. We little NICI. We read a little bit of Gary. Smith WHO'S A. Wonderful right who's worked for sports illustrated, but he didn't really write about. Sports wrote about life. And then we right, that's it you know and I hear their thoughts about things. But then we must be right about what they know. So I sent him everywhere. Send them all over the city. Send him the seven to get ice cream and cake on some of the Bronx sent him to go see with the said. We're Abbas field was go find a joke. Go get a hacker. Tell us what you see in the barber shop I make them do that. When. They're finished writing red ink, all of the pages of bloody, but the game young people you know they really are. I get a lot of inspiration from. My students at Nyu. Must, be interesting well I. Don't know if you're teaching summer classes days, but if when we come back in the fall, you know. Given the moment that this country is in right now when you step into a room of you know like. People from eighteen to twenty one years old, who really to right and and a big part of your? What you're asking them to do is go out into the world and observe and participate and understand how that comes into the classroom, the conversations in the writing with you. I only teach one course I barely have time to do that and I do it mostly because I just love the kids Manhattan. It gives me so much. Give me so much more than I. Could ever give them. When I think of young people in this country, you know when I think of these kids who meet at Nyu I'm encouraged and I'm inspired. All of this stuff that's been happening lately is just encouraging inspiring for me to witness. I'm delighted that so many young people have taken it upon themselves to to speak on behalf of people who cannot speak into try to write things at a time when so many of them are having such personal difficulty in in such deep personal challenges. Yeah, it's it's it is incredibly powerful to see what's going on and to see so many people rise up and step out and actually say things and acknowledged things and the especially when. People who feel drawn to to deeply observe and then turn that into language that somehow like what you said goes out into the world, and in some way effects, other people, the sort of a powerful place to be, but also a place where I I kind of I wonder if what the sense of responsibility that some people would feel in being the people who try and observe, and then turn that into language that goes into the world, and in some way, affects other people i. don't think that people who who do that sort of thing think that deeply.

"Mean. This takes all the fun out of life. The fact is when you create a novel. You're not creating it. You just following the people you you step into a world that. That's no longer yours and then you get a chance to see these people. Look the hard work is getting the characters to leap out the cup. Draw and start moving around. Once they start moving around. There's no work to be done other than your PGA ability as a craftsman to follow him or her as they go about their lives. True many of the paradigm, the sort of crude outlines of. Characters and plot design in digging King Kong a rooted in my life. Is boy up in a small baptist? Church in New York. But you know. I mean I didn't know these people I. Have you know organised like screw in the deacons. Might says they were proper people with that stuff going on, it's not something that I really was privy to. You know I've heard of it. You know but everybody he is of everything. You don't know what you here's true in a you. Hear rumors about this that and the other. What's important in Deacon King? Kong, and in any good story at least as far as I'm concerned. Is. that. If, the book is really good, you can tell. The writer really loves his or her character's. Rachel Kushner. Loves her characters. You know Lindsey Schreiber, who is probably I mean? I think she's kind of cynical. But she's talented. You know and you know I wish I'd written her books, but she loves her characters I I, don't. I don't agree with a cynicism, but she she understands so yeah, where the book comes from sure rooted in some of that. You know the life that my mother created this that makes sense. Yeah, it's an interesting question. Like why does why would anyone feel? Curious about. What leads somebody like the experience that led some one to create something that deeply moved them i. think my senses edge because we want to know the person better a in my case, you know. The color water was written because I simply didn't know what. But after I wrote it, I had a better idea. Deacon King Kong I really don't know what inspired me to write Honest to Jesus I. Just you know I just was laying in bed in this guy. Popped into my mind. You know, and because people I know. That who are part of the Church especially if you've Mayes, I'm sixty two I, remember back in the day when you know when you went to church. It wasn't like when you went to we went to judge wasn't like a Broadway show. You know like the band played. Now you go to church the big church. The band's playing the drums going. You know and it's all this phone. It's just like solve theater. Is is no real spiritual thing. The whole stereotype of the church. was they going? Jesus. Know people jumping around. That really wasn't how it was. How it was is that it was very quiet. And then some would stand up and they would talk. And then something else is supposed to happen, but someone else got up into his head, a word about something enduring the sick and shut in prayer lissome would stand ABS and don't forget to pray for him, and then he she would talk, and then they they might feel a song. They might start singing and everyone. Just it would strike your heart to and you would sing. And that was the most beautiful thing I used to see that when I was a boy at my mother, and when I saw that with her later on when she described going to churches, a young woman brokenhearted in May complete perfect sense. But you know you never knew where the spirit was coming from, and so the spirit of. The. You can analyze it, but it's like trying to analyze love. You love someone inexplicably great. It's like China described why Frank Sinatra was a great single. White Count Basie. Was One of the greatest bally's the world. He's just hear the music I get it. Yeah, it's so chain. They say that what the one word that I wrote down to myself after reading, it was just one word it was love, and that was the overwhelming feeling I got from it. You sure it was fun. It was like amazing characters like it felt like you were having a blast creating this like there was there was a spirit of joy that was finally three, but at the end of it like the overwhelming experience that I had was one of acceptance and love. Absolutely I mean I feel like Gabriel Garcia Marquez would use the solitude. He had a lot of fun. Until the end I don't know if he had funded. But I had a lot of fun writing this book and and the Good Labor. The GALORE was an escape for me because you know came when I was in the middle of a bribery. Very difficult divorce. My mother died and you know it was an escape for me to get away from you know. The difficulties of my life. King Kong was just. It was just the world I was so happy to be. Part of you know just it's a story that made me happy you know. And That's really kind of what it was. You have a friend of mine who writes who? Basically says he writes because there's something that needs to get out, but also because. Of the way something makes him feel while he's in the process of creation I'm curious whether you feel is at all. When you right whether something that's that's meaningful to you in like it while it's hard work, and and not all it is fun that there's a feeling of being alive when he's actually writing. That he feels, flows into an his palpable eventually, when somebody picks it up, reads or to it, I never thought of it that way as an artist. I, simply do what I can do best in. I can't imagine not writing when a living without words and without music, it would be very difficult for me. And I've been doing it so long now that I don't know how to live. I mean I walk around with the PAD in my pocket. Everywhere. And a pencil everywhere everywhere I go. And No matter what I'm even if I'm cutting the grass. Working with plant, so it doesn't matter wherever I have always have hundreds of notebooks. Laying around my house, really I just can't and I never go back to look at them. You know. I just have these ideas. I write down and I just get it, you know. But I, it's. You have to be a little bit obsessive compulsive when you're a writer..

"I guess that happens early on. You're still in the journalism side of things for a chunkier, but then, but even when I was on the journalism side of things, I always played music. Yeah, I mean I was always taken offline Thursday Friday night and head to gig somewhere. You know I. I was always. Never kept music too far from those always practicing you know, and I did it on the down low I I didn't really talk about it too much. My colleagues want to think I wasn't dedicated to the job you know. What I did do never I. Sometime cells young writers. I would not be hanging around for dinner and coffee, and all the stuff wasting Time Gossiping about whether I would just after the work was done I would go home and I practice. And I find it with music was where have I was Boston DC. I would find out with a final. Who Musicians were who was playing? You know? Ironically. I'd learn more about local news and local events as as a musician I ever learned as a reporter. Nicotine, not truth because you know. When you're reporting you, you're you're stuck. You gotTA. You know you have to put quote. Unquote supposedly must put certain things. And when you when you're musician, you know kicking around you. Oh, you heard this honest checking. See drive the other side of town. It's not there and then yeah, while on this on a saxophone of it. You check him out his keyboard player. You WanNa meet, but he's. He lives over in the singer. She's her cousin just got arrested. You gotta go help her I. Mean you know the stuff that it happens when I was at the post? I remember. I wanted to do a story about the base- Baseball Scout and I saw Ben Bradlee who is the editor of the paper in the hallway. And I went up to you know he was a legend back then. He well, he should have been. And I said to me now WANNA. Go Sia, one of those starbucks baseball scout. He said well. He said, have you talked to Mary? Her dossier was my Yan and she said, go ahead and do it. Mary dollars like the best editor. At in my opinion, she should run the post, but in any case I said I said Mary said go ahead, so he said well, what are you waiting for? He said if I had he said he pointed to the news. He said if I could make everyone in this room. Get up and clear out of here. I would do it right now. He said the news is not here. It's out there. He pointed to the window. And So. That's really what it is. Today you know where we gather news is just. She's terrible. No local news nobody goes out to report while it's happening now. Yes, forced to do it now, but yeah I think we're seeing this just massive new or citizen journalism also sort of like everybody's got a device where the report what's happening in the smallest of the smallest place or or in all the places where? It an maybe a big outlet isn't GonNa send someone nothing wrong with the yeah, now completely agree I mean. I've heard you say something a couple of times in the past about your time they're also which is a journalist becomes cynics, which I'm kind of curious about. Well if you WANNA stay creative. You have to avoid the cynicism that journalism creates. because. John. False! You know it's. It's magnetized toward politics. They kind of go together some in some way they like three fingers of one hand, sweeping the other hand, and you shake hands. Okay with this. That sixteen is with the other forefingers God. Them caught carefully. Because of the cynicism in the blood, and the guts from the first fingers. For six things feed over to the rest of the fingers in your whole hand is bleeding and wounded, and you'll never be able to build a house. That's a horrible metaphor, but my point is that cynicism. is destructive in terms of creativity. And and creativity is what makes one of the things that makes America a very unique and very very great place. so creativity doesn't happen. When you picking a video game about thefts or some other bullshit. It just doesn't happen. Excuse me, it just doesn't happen. You WanNa stay creative. You should read books. Walk the earth. Otherwise never gonNA journalists by comparison do get out and do things, but the level of. Cynicism that you allow into your life as a journalist will. At some point. Simply. Would just pull water on your spark your creative spark. So you have to be careful and that that cynicism dozen happened that rather skepticism can roll in. That's fine. Skepticism is fog. But cynicism is thunder and lightning rain. You just you gotta move. You can move your way through fog and discover great things. When it's raining hard in. He's look shelter, and there goes your story goodbye. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense At some point, you end up. Moving entirely over after your time Washington, post you decide to go all in on the music side for a chunk of time. I'm curious was at a slow building of a feeling like this is the right move, or or was there a moment or event or happening that sort of triggered that decision? I can't remember I think.

I guess it was really just a big part of your family. Church music books sounds like you're introducting music side also was sort of A. The church needed people to play. That's true. Yeah, well, you know. We grew up in the church in the Baptist showed that we heard that kind of music growing up and we listened to it at home we didn't have you know I grew up in a time when you listen to records and you know, and you only had a certain number of record, so you listen to whatever was on the radio. And whatever wreckage you had at home and I think it gave you a wider Palette in terms of which you draw on later what I drawn later when I became a musician. because. you had to listen to what everybody else listen to also as opposed to listening to the kind of music that you thought you liked. So but yeah I grew up in. You know in the church when we always listen to music swung hard, you know. That sort of heavy. Hearts swing in one thousand nine hundred. Fifty Nine Thousand Six Gospel. That is really really one part of of the so-called African, American musical experience, but it's it's one of the most popular one of the most affecting and Swedish so. It always made music special to me. I I just can't imagine life without music. I I just can't imagine being a writer. Without having music is part of my. Vocabulary you know. Yeah, I almost wonder I mean when you go back and forth when you're working on something between playing composing and writing all the time. On. Do you feel like that likely? You can feel the sensibilities sort of the two interplay with each other. I don't know I. Just do it to keep from going crazy Ya. You, know you you. Only have so much gas in the tank. When you run these characters on the page with they're running your own on the page and you have to get up. You have to move around, but you don't want to go. It's a coffee shop and Start Gossiping with somebody about nothing, so you sit down the peons out. We're going to listen. I mean writing a music she had this. They are about the process of failing continuously. And, so you just learn to accept failure and you absorb it. And then it pushes you to something that's new and hopefully special at different. So the act of just getting your tail kicked every day by these two are forms that you know in not really as good as. People believe to be at. It helps you live keeps you humble and keeps. You keeps you healthy. No. Yeah. I mean it's. It's interesting, also because SORTA well when I look at The two together and it sounds like from what I. Know Your approach to both. You know it's. It's not about structure. It's not about surly building the outline affiliate it in it's. It's about it's jazz like either way. It's jazz absolutely I. Mean, but you know you have to be careful when you say that because okay I saw bruce springsteen one of my life. Back in the eighties he was the meadowlands and I didn't even WanNa go, you know as as like rock and roll you know man. The concert was four hours and it felt like it was a half along. I mean it was. So good I mean you know Clarence climate? But this was when he was you know. I don't know if you've listened to even know who Bruce Springsteen is now they did they do. I saw him play three years at you know what used to be. The meadowlands also for four hours and my mind was blown. Oh, he's just the bad cat. Ridiculous man so I mean, but my point is that. If if it's right, you just feeling and Bruce springsteen got plenty jazz in his music. I mean you know in a he? Doesn't you know? His jazz isn't supposedly like the most sophisticated? But. There's plenty jazz there. I mean what is Jazz. You know you know as as Louis Armstrong said. You have to ask I really don't know. You know music that brings that moves to the heart. That makes you feel good inside. The gives you hope. And you WanNa hug you a neighbor. That's jazz and Bruce in that regard. Bruce Springsteen is loaded myth because he's you know. He spent his entire career trying to make people see the best part of themselves and others, and that's really that's what jazz should do. That's what any good music should do, and that that includes off alums loans of classical music. so. For Me Jazz and Blues and Gospel have been part of my. DNA might musical DNA. But that doesn't mean that I don't appreciate you.

"A Taylor its planes break shot exactly how autobiographical many of his songs are who the Suzanne of fire and rain was and how she died his music might be more confessional in feeling than fact? I mean you could listen to the title track of Sweet Baby James. For most of your life and fully understand the sweetly exhausted deep green and blue emotions it describes without ever knowing that it was an account of James Driving home to North Carolina to meet his nephew his older brother Alex's newborn son also named James her. Maybe that's just me. I mean listen to that song for decades at least once on the very turnpike from stockbridge to Boston that talks about and I definitely understood all the feelings without ever really knowing the story at first American standard seems like something completely different. I mean this is James Taylor singing other people's songs and show tunes hard exactly confessions but look at it this way. American standard is Taylor's first album in five years but hardly his first time playing covers. He's been singing them for a long time. If you don't count his version of the Nineteenth Century Stephen Foster Song Oh Susanna on sweet baby James then you'd have to count his version of Carole. King's you've got a friend on his next album mudslide slim. And then there's his duet with his then wife Carly Simon on Anez and Charlie Fox's Mockingbird in one thousand nine hundred ninety four and his great reworking of the Nineteen Sixty Jimmy Jones. Hit Handyman on. Jt In nineteen seventy seven. I mean he released a whole album called covers in two thousand and eight in the more covers.

Shot and talked in depth with me Taylor grew up playing that kind of music alongside his brother. Alex in a band they had called the fabulous corsairs. An American standard tells story in a similar way. These are songs. He grew up hearing. Some were on albums in his parents record collection in North Carolina. Some he heard on family trips to New York City to see Broadway shows a regular of ed organized by his mom. He does a version of Surrey with the fringe on top from Oklahoma on the new album.
