A Blog Supreme caught my eye and ear this morning with a recording of Misha Mengelberg’s Eeko from his album Epistrophy. It was a perfect tune for this morning — my windows open, just after a fresh night rain, and the birds outside joining in. Further bird-related jazz music at another NPR post called Jazz Is For the Birds .

That reminded me. Oliver Messiaen has a pretty extensive group of compositions inspired by bird calls. After listening to a few I have on a box set of his works, I stumbled on this page that compares a few bird calls that Messiaen used with how he used them.

Alright, enough sunshine and tulips. Back to work.
