As I step into the early morning breeze, I remember the aroma of fresh cut grass, the sight of bees working each tiny bloom and hummingbirds zooming hither and yonder, the smell of lavender and mint from the herb garden, and blackberry bushes loaded with luscious fruit and the perfume of muscadine grapes...

Several of his concerts, including his landmark gig at Chicago’s Cook County Jail, endure in legend to this day. His career roller-coasted between adulation and relegation...
