When you contemplate the illustrious career of Harvey Mason, your mind HAS to be blown. Born and raised in Atlantic City, young Harvey absorbed the vibes of the great musicians THERE - and showed so much promise on drums that he was playing with Duke Ellington and Errol Garner in the 60's. Early in his recording career, there he was - up front and center with Blue Note Records. And on Columbia: Please go check out Herbie Hancock and The Headhunters for a refresher course in freshly fused Jazz :)
The associations that this consummate first-call musician has made through five decades is staggering. Because, quite simply, HE is. Nathan East has shared space and stages with The Mase for 25 years or so (Fourplay's "Silver" just dropped) and he firmly suggests that drummers of ANY note studied Harvey Mason in order to find their own style. He was THAT distinctive THAT early in his journey.
We dare you to find another legendary drummer who has been involved with more Gold and Platinum recording sessions than our guest. Awards, accolades, nods from NARAS and "Modern Drummer." Over 150 motion picture soundtracks. A regular fixture at the Oscars each year. And that long relationship with Fourplay cannot be stressed enough. When you're with a successful musical unit for 25 years, that's cause for celebration!
As bandmates Nathan, Chuck Loeb, Bob James, and Harvey prepare for a holiday run at the Blue Note in New York, our friend wanted to take the time - during this Thanksgiving week - to express his gratitude for all that his fans have given him. How beautiful that NEW fans and fellow artists got together for his album last year. And how wonderful that life-long "brothers" are banding together again right before Christmas. How fortunate are we to visit with Harvey again? You already KNOW :)

J.D. Mason, ReShonda Tate Billingsley, Bernice L. McFadden
Freemasonry was designed by thinkers, for thinkers. The most realistic qualifier is how a man answers a fundamental question; Do you read?
Our history includes ignominious confrontation at various points with church and state. We have had our 'ouch' moments as Professor Steven Bullock conveniently defined for us in the reaction of America to a version of masonry that had become overbearing dining on privilege. The Order was shamed and routed, only to come out of the shadows into a changed political landscape forever ready to repel such behaviour.
During a period when the superstitions of religions reined supreme, freemasonry was heavily sanctioned. When monarchs became uncomfortable, the Order was driven underground. And we are reminded, when the sounds of battle echo in our ears, how combatants laid down their weapons drawn out by mason recognizing mason. Doesn't it seem to trivialize an organization of thinkers, to declare freemasonry is a social organization?
When gentlemen sit down to talk, good taste dictates cordiality. Good manners among gentlemen expects good food and drink. As we relax, we talk. As we talk we offer something worth saying. We exchange ideas. The best minds connect with the best music, the best literature, the best experiences. Life becomes a matter of exploration to satisfy curiousity. The close can't get in. Philistines can only mockingly accuse us of elitism. And the Order passes through time, absorbing the influence of philosophy.
Is this the elixir against conservatism that comes with creeping old age? One could argue, the lively ideas of our Order form what Ponce de Leon searched but never found. Fountain of Youth? Too radical?
