“Windows of Enlightenment1. Foreign Dalliance The foreign realm is listening to Divine Intelligence recognizing that disobedience ultimately succumbs to peace and justice. Foreign Dalliance is exemplary of the aforementioned fact. Listen to the perfect organization of the piano and French horn rhythms essentially captivating your senses in melodic stupendous splendor. Suddenly, a boisterous crescendo of crowd-like sounds created with percussion instruments arise from out of the blue disrupting your satisfied spirit. Isn’t this a perfect example of disorder or music discord? But wait, Papa’s Foreign Dalliance is not finished until its musical notes allows your consciousness to peaceably surrender to the immeasurable pleasure of royally smooth jazz.2. Domesticity BreedsDomesticity Breeds is so mellow even with the human sounds that evoke emotional passion. This song will have you saying out loud, “Bring it on home to me.” The “IT” is whatever your imagination can conjure up. 3. WindowPad DomesticatesThe first couple of notes caused my brow to unfold into relaxation and my mind to say, “Yes! He’s back.” WindowPad Domesticates evokes in your mind the spirit of the old-time bebop jazz of the 1940s…. the time of improvisation, harmonic structure and instrumental virtuosity. The kind of sophisticated rhythmic jazz that contemporaneously moves your shoulders, head and feet through each harmonic progression. WindowPad Domesticates is sensuously smooth. It beckons for WindowPad to return to its own country and shower the fruits of its labors upon its true and rightful owner. Now, allow the mellow sax to cause you to swoon as you BOP to Papa’s music.4. Mirroring SpatiallyMirroring Spatially possesses a Brazilian-Caribbean beat with a hint of exceptional laid back soulful American musical swag. The instruments blend yet simultaneously stand out beautifully. These musical notes simply engulf the brain matter & slowly undulates up, down as well as through the sutures and bubbly folds then luxuriates in its awesome power of knowledge, health, illusion, healing, love, peace & wholeness. Complete perfection! Adversary let us join together like brain texture & make this situation we find ourselves in a winning one for both of us mirroring and thinking spatially i.e., Adversary looks at 1987 mirroring WindowPad holding 1984 spatially. A change or rather exchange is manifesting. NAMASTE!5. Curative ActionA curative action is passed retroactively to correct the errors or irregularities in past legal proceedings and render them valid and effective for an intended purpose. Getting a legal proceeding re-opened based upon new information essentially initiates a curative action. Similarly, Papa’s Curative Action provides a soothing musical portrayal of the intended consequence of the action i.e., the snare drum’s smooth reggae beat flowing into the fullness of cymbals and trombones resulting in an exchange of pleasantries. 6. Windows of EnlightenmentIf you have been following the legal battles of Adversary and WindowPad then you realize that each song supra is a WINDOW of Enlightenment into each phase of the war.Windows of Enlightenment is a strong, brassy, bossy but agile piece. The addition of string instruments, including bass guitar, makes the music a superb mixture of symphonic wonderment.”

“What’s All The Racket? What’s All the Racket is the story of the past and present trials and tribulations of the common-law trademark WindowPad as it seeks to protect its name from the slimy hands of Adversary. WindowPad made its debut into interstate and international commerce in 1984 as the trademark of its software product using overlapping windows whereas Adversary reached the marketplace late in 1985. WindowPad was identified as a trademark within the Copyright Registration No. TX0001453605 for the software product (GOTO http://www.copyright.gov/records/, CLICK "Copyright Office Online Records Catalog" under "Post-1978 Records" and in the "Search for" box TYPE the name "WindowPad," then CLICK the "Begin Search" button at the bottom of the page to view the owner and other information relating to WindowPad.). The Adversary, recognizing the benefits of having a “catchy,” easy to recall name like WindowPad, arrived on the interstate commerce scene with its software product in 1985 bearing a derivative of WindowPad’s name. Since 1994(date the Adversary was formally notified of WindowPad’s superior rights), WindowPad has been in a fiery dispute with the Adversary who has gained extraordinary profits from WindowPad’s derivative. Review the Playbill for WindowPad as you listen to Papa Bass’s picturesque music, then go to the websites indicated and read all of the material submitted (request to view the material that is presented with titles only and not “hot-linked” via the Freedom of Information Act or PACER). Papa sets WindowPad’s story to music in such a captivating and mesmerizing manner that it certainly invokes the memory of Mahatma Gandhi’s pensive statement: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then YOU WIN.” 1. WindowPad WindowPad was stable in the marketplace in 1984. Apart from the fact that the software product bearing its name was selling well something attracted the attention of Adversary. Exactly what stood out about the name is unknown: Perhaps it was the overlapping windows in its software or that the common-law trademark carried a “catchy,” easy to remember name with a symbolic meaning that possessed staying power. Nevertheless in 1985, a name derived from WindowPad appeared written upon a competitor’s software product. Note the dates of entry into interstate commerce: WindowPad entered in 1984 whereas Adversary entered in 1985 with a derivative name. Papa Bass’s musical rendition of WindowPad is silky smooth and represents stability. The song is a sleek mixture of jazz and blues with a hint of sadness relating to the ownership of its own WindowPad name being intruded upon and wrenched away. 2. How Dare You Use My Name This piece presents a conversation utilizing high-pitched sounds, drums and bass instrumentation. It almost sounds as if an argument is taking place that is very similar to the back and forth bickering between WindowPad and its Adversary from 1994 to the present. What a brilliant mind (or should it be called mine field) Papa Bass has that enables him to capture a moment in time with a perfect musical production. 3. Intellectual Racketeering The long sustained notes of the organ with its stomping, grinding sound is reminiscent of a thief in the night that steals a trademark’s identity (WindowPad) and relishes in the knowledge that he has performed the PERFECT CRIME. This delighted thief commits a premeditated act of identity theft and proceeds to make profits from the stolen identity and therein lies the Racketeering; thereby, stepping and dancing on the back of the rightful owner of WindowPad. Additionally, hear the muted trumpet in the background of Intellectual Racketeering that is representative of WindowPad trying to lift its voice through the mirage and let the world know of the persecution it suffers under the feet of an enormous Adversary. Intellectual Racketeering wonderfully embraces WindowPad’s feeling of anguish and frustration. 4. Derivatives WindowPad’s toes have been stepped on at least 68 times by Adversary. Go to http://www.uspto.gov/index.jsp, move to the right of the page and CLICK "Trademarks," on the next page SCROLL to "Search Trademark Database," and CLICK, on the subsequent page SCROLL down to the first line under “Trademark Electronic Search System” and CLICK on “TESS,” then under “Select A Search Option" CLICK "Word and/or Design Mark Search (Free Form)," INSERT 1872264 (Registration Number) into the “Search Term" box and CLICK “Submit Query” to see at least 68 derivatives of WindowPad for yourself. Now GOTO Page 25 of the TTABVUE data and look for the words “En Fleur Corp.” (a.k.a. Papa Bass) i.e., the very LAST FILE. (Google TTABVUE, then type Registration No. 1872264 into the “Application or Registration Number” box and CLICK “Search” at the bottom of the page, CLICK Plaintiff [the first file/top right corner] on the following page, after the results are returned GOTO Page 25.) Question: Why is WindowPad (Petitioner En Fleur) the very last file when all files according to TTABVUE’s notification are in “reverse chronological order?” (WindowPad was filed in 1997 whereas the TTABVUE’s placement implies that the case was the first one ever filed even though there were many cases filed against Adversary before 1997) Is the WindowPad case being HIDDEN? Are the files in the WindowPad case being HIDDEN? Nevertheless, as the Bible says all things HIDDEN will be revealed. (Mark 4:21-22 and Luke 8:16-17) SPECIAL NOTE of 2/1/2019: Recently, a case dated 1993 was moved below En Fleur and appears as the very last file. Therefore, En Fleur is now in the position of next to the last file. This movement by TTABVUE causes one to ponder why it was necessary. BUT BEFORE you leave on your “seek and you shall find” mission, listen to the wooden blocks in the rhythm of Derivatives simulating the sound of many feet stepping all over something—maybe WindowPad (Remember that copying is the sincerest form of flattery and it can also validate the strength of a common-law trademark like WindowPad.). Adding to the melodious splendor of Derivatives are the sweet sounds of many trombones arriving right on time to complement the wooden blocks. Take some time out to relax in your favorite chair and enjoy the radiant rapturous arrangement of Derivatives as you ponder what you’ve just discovered. Aren’t Revelations fantastic? 5. Twenty Plus Years Of Infringement Listen to the pounding upon the keys: WindowPad that appeared in commerce in 1984 with overlapping windows is vocalizing its displeasure with the derivative that pounced upon WindowPad’s territory in 1985. The interpretation of the clanging of the cymbals and ringing of the triangles in Twenty Plus Years of Infringement relate to the intruder that the bell is “tolling.” Twenty Plus Years of Infringement also includes a “song and dance” of the percussion instruments with the bass guitar, and the musical routine appears to be saying to the intruder “Enough! You will step on me no more. WindowPad will not go down without a fight, will not go quietly into the night but will stand up and fight for its rights.” Note below the “song and dance” of WindowPad then research the data online even request to view the material that is presented with titles only and not “hot-linked,” i.e., the “hidden” data files (make the request through the Freedom of Information Act or use PACER where appropriate) and read the evidence submitted for yourself. In other words, you be the judge. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, Proceeding No.92026548 (1997) U. S.

Justice Has Failed Me The saxophone playing a melody! Have you ever heard such sweetness? Leave it to Papa Bass to create such a sweet, rich, full but unthinkably light sound with a most unlikely instrument, a saxophone. Papa Bass you truly are a genius. In addition, imagine Justice just dancing all around the truth, laughingly devising ways to make old law apply to the circumstances in order to give the interloper dominance over WindowPad who appeared first in commerce thereby epitomizing Justice Has Failed Me. Listen to the agility of the light, soft notes of the saxophone as it playfully bounces amidst the other instruments. The sound of Justice Has Failed Me makes you want to lift your feet and shake your hips delighting in the warm feeling of being able to do whatever you wish. This lightheartedness causes one to visualize WindowPad’s intruder bouncing all over the floor firmly believing that it has gotten away with the goods i.e., WindowPad’s derivatives. Imagine the intruder relishing in the warm comforting knowledge that Justice has covered its eyes (see no evil), ears (hear no evil) and mouth (speak no evil) in matters that concern its evil ways—even when the facts are presented to Justice on a silver platter. Listener GOTO TTABVUE and type in Registration No. 1872264 then look for Proceeding Nos. 92026548 and 92043487 CLICK on each file or go directly to http://ttabvue.uspto.gov/ttabvue/v?pno=92026548&pty=CAN and http://ttabvue.uspto.gov/ttabvue/v?pno=92043487&pty=CAN, respectively to read the information submitted. Review the opinions last. Can you hear Papa’s song Justice Has Failed Me as you peruse all of the information including the material in the “hidden files” (Make a special request to obtain these files via the Freedom of Information Act or PACER.)? 7. Benevolent Despot The name of this song speaks volumes for itself. As the adage states: If the shoe fits, wear it. The title, Benevolent Despot, resonates recent news and should sound familiar to you. Nevertheless, hear the rock licking, rocket ascending and scale gliding sounds made by Papa Bass’s trumpet as the lead. Benevolent Despot swings with devilish rhythmic grace just like a human Benevolent Despot. 8. The Bigger They Are The Harder They Fall The title, The Bigger They Are The Harder They Fall, reminds one of the meaning behind the old cliché: Even though you are mighty and a heavyweight with a “nobody bothers me” mentality, some small entity positioned in the right place and time can strike a blow and bring you down. Now, add the following comparative matches and ETHICAL messages to the soupy musical mix as you listen to The Bigger They Are The Harder They Fall: The Mouse that Roared, David and Goliath, Battle of Jericho, The Plagues of Egypt, Moses and Let My People Go. In simile, WindowPad is David’s rock, the mouse that is heard, the horn bringing Jericho’s walls down, the plague in Egypt and the faith of Moses that frees his people. Persistence, faith, patience, perseverance always wins. Listen to the whimsical, gay, high-pitched sounds of the flute as it is sustained by the cadence of the drums and guitar in The Bigger They Are The Harder They Fall. Close your eyes as you hear the song and visualize the movement of the water strider and basilisk lizard actually running lightly across the water’s surface to the beat of The Bigger They Are The Harder They Fall. Oh, such peace and tranquility. Papa Bass your music places me in such rapturous splendor. 9. Sweet Taste Of Victory Use your sense of sight and sound to view the stately prance of WindowPad as it triumphantly moves to the finger trills cascading over the keys of the majestic piano. Notice how the bass clef of the piano keeps a steady beat as the melody of happiness playfully keeps the treble clef afloat. Finally truth, justice, and the law prevail for the small business entrepreneur. Sweet Taste of Victory is a fitting piece to represent to the world that the “little guy” can win. FIRST THEY IGNORE YOU, THEN THEY LAUGH AT YOU, THEN THEY FIGHT YOU, THEN YOU WIN. - Mahatma Gandhi Papa Bass owns WindowPad and En Fleur Corp., and Mama Bass owns him.”

“THE MIRACLE OF EIGHT IT’S YOUR MOVE Recent events cause one to pause and ponder: New regime but old firm still equals Adversary. However, seven years have passed since the last meeting with Adversary (2008). Additionally, numerological, biblical and metaphysical experts agree that seven signifies the end of a cycle and eight represents new beginnings, a resurrection or birth. Regardless of whether WindowPad resurrects from smoldering embers due to an interdict or arises in a new form due to a joint venture with a new partner, the eighth year prognosticates change. IT’S YOUR MOVE opens with a blend of instruments, including the electric organ and strings, RISING to an orgasmic entrance of the strings and tenor sax accentuating its name and firmly declaring IT’S YOUR MOVE. He that has ears let him hear and interpret the clear meaning of the song’s pulsating beat. GLIMPSE OF GRACE Drawing on reservoirs of courage and faith for seven years (2008-2015) can manifest a miracle in the eighth year (2016) for WindowPad just as it did for the Jewish army against the Syrian-Greek occupation in 139 BCE. Grace empowers transformative change and WindowPad is glimpsing it. Transformative is exactly what GLIMPSE OF GRACE does to your senses: FIRST, the electric piano has your head bobbing and nodding while the organ causes the torso to twist and turn. SECOND, the mesmerizing tenor sax has you transfixed to its smooth, low, full, bold and curvaceous notes that cause your legs to move the body in a sensuous and seductive manner. THIRD, the rich sound of the vibes simply make you believe that the world is your oyster and anything you desire is yours. Eureka!! Your brain has just glimpsed GRACE in the rhythm of Papa. SNIFF AND WHIFFLE Sniff the air. Can you smell the change that is coming? Some people can. They have good noses. The Whiffler wonders if forgiveness and monetary compensation are on the horizon as well. Remember, the adage “nothing beats a failure but a try.” In other words stop wondering, move in the direction of congeniality and extend your hand in friendship. You just may be pleasantly surprised that everyone can win in this situation. Synchronicity of coincidences may not be just chance events but the universe urgently putting events in front of you that cannot be ignored in order to get you on the right track. How can you tell when the universe is trying to get your attention? Listen to your inner voice, the words of a song or melodious smooth jazz that brings to mind a significant event. Sniff scents around you while walking, patting your knee or enjoying the sounds of the acoustic guitar playfully dancing around with the electric piano and tenor sax. Then notice your body’s signs. Some individuals denote a sign or recommendation from the universe by feeling butterflies in the stomach while others will know they are on the right path by a sweet smell as in the scent of roses. Regardless of how the universe makes suggestions to you, it is very important that you LISTEN and pay attention otherwise you will place yourself in a repetitious cycle of the same circumstances (usually worse) until the lesson is learned or you get on the right track. SNIFF AND WHIFFLE’s acoustic guitar, electric piano and tenor sax learned their lessons well as each recognized when to allow the other to individually play and shine in the spotlight. Subsequently, in the middle of the song, all instruments join together and complement one another in a wondrous way then signs off one by one leaving you smiling in satisfaction. Expect to play SNIFF AND WHIFFLE more than once before moving to the next track. LEESY LEESY is like a good wine, it just gets better with age. Similarly, an unjust decision gets embellished with more details and better with age the longer it stays in the national and international realms. LEESY is LEESY. What else can I say? It is smooth and graceful but when LEESY needs to express itself in a boisterous way, it bellows with an oceanic expanse of rhythms that cause you to envision yourself under a dome enmeshed in beautiful swirls of music. Versatility is LEESY’s pseudonym. Listen to the laid back sound of the electric bass as it yields to the emotionally stirring notes of the tenor sax. In addition, did you hear the amplified French horn bellowing and seeming to surround but not distort the sax’s tender notes, the acoustic piano’s light-fingers or the low bossy sound of the electric bass guitar? LEESY delivers a delicious instrumental repertoire for your discerning palate. PAPA’S THEME Let’s shake the posterior, roll the shoulders and be gregarious together while luxuriating in PAPA’S THEME. Oh, how the snare drum sticks beat out an anticipatory introduction for the theme of this musical masterpiece. The cadence is so delightfully memorable that you rise to your feet ready to sway knowing that glory is approaching. Later, the chop sticks join the snares and send you on your way to meet with destiny. The remaining instruments complementing the percussion section provide the best rendition of syncopation and accentuation ever heard. THE MIRACLE OF EIGHT Eight is simultaneously first and the end i.e., the first day of a new beginning and the end of the old. Hence, seven years of faith, endurance, humility, long-suffering, courage and tribulation yields to transformative change bringing forth wealth, peaceful desires, inner wisdom, pragmatism, good judgement, abundance and integrity thereby resulting in all adversarial parties winning. Notice how the bass guitar, electric guitar and organ clearly signifies each attribute or quality of the metaphysical and transformative aspects of THE MIRACLE OF EIGHT. One can actually repeat the name of each characteristic along with the music. Thus, there appears to be a mystical element embedded within the aura of THE MIRACLE OF EIGHT creating an ambience of wholesomeness and goodness.”

“A Fifth of Blues Encapsulated: 1984, 1987, 2016 What connects the three years? Answer: WindowPad’s copyright & trademark The swishing accents of the percussive cymbals, jazzy organ and playful electric piano call forth the “I’ve got you now” muted horns and sassy brass. Papa makes all of these instruments swish and swirl yet gives each section its time in the spotlight to shine in a manner similar to significant events in 1984 (WindowPad), and 1987 (Memo/Four before Seven). 2016 (The prognosticator) encapsulates 1984 & 1987. It is now time to give your right foot a rest from tapping and switch to the left foot. You are experiencing positive irrepressible movement to Papa Bass’s mellifluous creation. Court Blasted Blues Some people read a document, take what it relates at face value and make snap decisions while others dig beneath the surface and uncover the meat…the real meat….the delectably seasoned meat that still retains its salt. The deciphered written meat unveils knowledge of the narrow lonesome path that when followed leads the rightful owner to the golden treasure, thence WindowPad blasts out. Court Blasted Blues starts out soft with the organ alone setting the rhythm for a few bars, then the big bad saxophone bursts out and spills forward with its full euphonious notes. Who would have dreamed that the saxophone could be so soothing? Yet, you are listening to the Sax levy pleasant honey-filled notes upon your ear. Thus, Papa has demonstrably delivered another lesson: Always look beneath the surface or within for the gold because it is never on top. A Fifth of Blues A Fifth of Blues possesses a foreboding sound full of heaviness and dread as blown by the Soprano Saxophone. This song is essentially, the Bluesiest of the blues. Even though you may shake your head commiserating with the melody, Papa Bass uses the whiny harmonica to light the path to a feeling of good-will and hope. He never lets you stay down. Adversary’s Symptomatic Ways Question: Can Adversary plot a new, positive & meaningful course of action? Doesn’t Adversary’s Symptomatic Ways seem to ask whether to choose Course A or Course B? It seems to be timidly moving in more than one direction simultaneously. Nevertheless, the instruments are blended quite well and definitely creates a picture as well as feeling of indecisiveness. One thing is for sure, it is quintessentially Papa Bass because your body parts are impulsively and unconsciously moving. Fallen Chiefs One by One Do you remember Papa’s Despot, Ferret, Duck and Fester (The Ides)? Have you figured out who the characters represent? If so, then you can understand Fallen Chiefs One by One. All for one, one for all and all fall down. Fallen Chiefs One by One is a nice slow tune for holding your “sweet one” close while dancing under very dim lights. Virtuosity Exposes You Papa Bass has skillfully turned Adversary’s maneuvering to wrench WindowPad into a musical folktale and the people of the world have become enlightened. A very sexy tune that puts you in the realm of togetherness. Virtuosity Exposes You also evokes erotic and romantic feelings. The title aptly describes the deep soulful notes played by tenor saxophone subsequently joined by the lightheartedness of the organ and harmonica.”
— A Fifth of Blues
“1987 New information has come to light in the form of a Memorandum and results in an affirmance of WindowPad’s prior statements (“..Racket,” “..Taboo,” “..Ides”). The eminence of Papa’s domain is the smelting of instrumental music, legalese and spirituality to produce evocative smooth jazz. 1. Didn’t I Tell You Swirling piano notes are in the midst of a hip rolling Calypso beat. 2. The Inevitable The organ steadfastly delivers the melodious purpose while the horns provide an undercurrent moray effect that gently and repetitively conveys a yearning for pecuniary absolution. 3. 1987 The boldness of the Fender jazz bass sets the tone and rhythm of 1987, a demanding as well as domineering year. This piece will place you squarely in the winner’s circle. 4. PTO Very active and playful. PTO is a jazz piano lover’s dream. 5. Descriptive DESCRIPTIVE is a jamboree, that is, various instruments having a jovial time taking the lead being handed to it by a party saying “It’s your ball, now make your move.” Listening to DESCRIPTIVE simply makes you happy. 6. Back to 1984 The usurper pays homage to 1984 and returns the bounty to its rightful owner. Doesn’t BACK TO 1984 also seem to subliminally say “come on home to me?” This song appears reticent about whether it wants you to move fast at a thousand beats per minute, think steadily on your feet or regain your composure and resolutely complete the task at hand. BACK TO 1984 is a magnificent composition. God is good.”
“Released to Distributors May 14, 2014 Who Whisper’s Taboo? 1- Smoothy Efforesces Justice Harmonica in jazz?? Yes! But only when Papa Bass plays the harmonica in one of his compositions does it sound normal. Explanation: Papa’s brain turns out notes on an instrument that intertwine with other sounds as they rise into the angelic realm then return to earth in a cloud of mesmerizing harmony regardless of the instrument. Notice the blooming quality of Smoothy Efforesces Justice: The jazz guitar has the lead as if tiptoeing through the wonderful garden that is sprouting and bearing fruit from the seeds it planted as the harmonica and strings continue to fertilize and water them. Adversary ("What's All The Racket"), this is the way God planned it. “He that hath eyes, let him see. He that hath ears, let him hear.” The Bible 2- Who Whispers Taboo Who Whispers??? This saxophone does everything but whisper, it blows in the most convincingly affirmative way. The synergy created among the percussion instruments, piano and soprano saxophone interacts with your shoulders and make them move unbeknownst to you; but, others see them go up and down as well as back and forth. You only know that Papa’s music makes you feel good and peaceful. Enjoy being in sync with spirit and Papa’s Smooth Jazz. Who Whispers Taboo? This is a very poignant question. It is acknowledged that what Adversary did to WindowPad ("What's All The Racket")was by every turn of the coin TABOO. Nevertheless, is Papa really alluding to something else? Listen closely to this revealing composition. 3- Stealthy The guitars (electric and bass), drums and organ are jamming because you can actually feel the music in your bones. Papa’s manner of putting together a rhythm that exemplifies a clandestine operation is surreal. Close your eyes as you listen to Stealthy and each character’s movement can be clearly seen moving about planning a scheme in a conspiratorial secretive way. Conspirators, such as Adversary ("What's All The Racket"), are slow to realize that the truth always comes to the forefront, nothing is ever hidden forever. 4- A Necessary Interdiction Sometimes a Necessary Interdiction is needed to get someone to do what should have been done initially in order to achieve an amicable settlement An interdiction is akin to the universe correcting an error to achieve balance. Notice how Papa’s piano interrupts the Jazz guitar’s melody with a statement that essentially commands the jazz guitar to walk along with it down a better path. Thereafter, a crescendo of cymbals and chimes carries every instrument including the piano to another plateau. Thoroughbred, Papa Bass. 5- WindowPad’s Angelic Sanctuary The thinking man eventually realizes that four is before five (definitely before seven) and a straight line is the easiest, most direct, path to a destination or resolution of a problem. WindowPad’s Angelic Sanctuary makes you sit back and contemplate on life as you pat your foot to the relaxing beat. During this period of quiet meditation, new ideas may be revealed. 6- The Dance of Taboo, Smoothy Justice Happy is he that with a whole heap of God’s help and a Necessary Interdiction has achieved his goal of attaining Justice in an extraordinary fashion. Dance on Taboo, Smoothy and Justice into the bright light of generosity, love and happiness. March onward Smoothy playing your flute like a piper showing the way to others about how to obtain Justice (even when the outlook appears bleak) by putting God first and allowing faith to lead the way. The Dance of Taboo, Smoothy and Justice leads with the piano and flute happily dancing in song around each other. This song is full of cheerfulness and lightheartedness. The Dance of Taboo, Smoothy and Justice certainly will have you experiencing joie de vivre and on your feet dancing with a smile on your face.”

“Released to Distributors on May 30, 2013 THE IDES 1. IGNORE The electric piano with its beautiful full rolling notes and the bass guitar’s deliberate rhythm sets the mood and pace of IGNORE’s prelude. Peacefulness and calm are two words that attempt to describe the profound feeling derived from this introduction. Then the high hat and bass drums enter embellishing upon the pumping thump of the bass. At last, Papa adds the main ingredient to the bubbling brew i.e., the round mellow sounds of the grand stately organ splendiferously blending with the trumpet’s unbelievable pitch. Majestically, the saxophone stirs and cooks all of this deliberateness, bubbling, thumping, sensuousness and enlightenment into a provocatively delicious mixture of understanding. You wonder why Papa Bass named this sumptuous piece IGNORE. Serendipity! That is right! While your attention is placed upon one instrument another one smoothly joins the fray without you noticing it resulting in a fortuitous discovery of perfect wholeness. In other words, what you refuse to pay attention to ultimately overtakes or supersedes you. Remember also the force of the pendulum when it swings: The force of gravity causes it to swing more forceful in the opposite direction. Watch out! What you ignore comes back at you more forceful than before. The moral of this story-oops-song is two-fold: (a) Never judge a book [song] by looking at is cover [title]; and, (b) For every action there is a reaction that is often greater than. 2. LAUGH Let your ears feast on the gaiety of LAUGH. Envision yourself just dancing on your tiptoes, hands in the air and prancing to the complementary notes of the saxophone and electric piano like you don’t have a care in the world. When you hear the titillating sounds of the strings and marimba put a little shoulder movement into your performance-first the left 2 times then the right 2 times-and smile as you allow yourself to become lost in the hypnotic spell cast by Papa’s breath and his thousands fingers. Subtly, the acoustic guitar and marimba bring you back to reality. What a successful and enjoyable journey! The title LAUGH also has other connotations. Did you hear the Fat Lady Sing in this composition? Absolutely not! Hence, LAUGH can be played over and over again until the Fat Lady sings. The colloquial meaning of “til the Fat Lady sings” is that one should never assume the outcome of a situation or activity until it is actually completed. In accordance with the aforesaid, WindowPad’s new information relates that Adversary (“…Racket” CD) may not be the one having the last and best LAUGH. Listen intently to Papa’s saxophone and marimba as each plays with the melody of the other in the middle of LAUGH and reflect upon what is fair and just. “Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth.” Mahatma Gandhi 3. FIGHT Parties take your positions now as FIGHT begins. Prepare yourselves to advance into battle. In FIGHT, the saxophone and bass guitar represent the opponents as they move around each other in a circular motion trying to predict the other’s moves, means of attack and counter-attack. The timbre of the drums and trumpet depict the engaging battle. Imagine listener that two parties are embroiled in a fight: WindowPad is the only party presenting the law and evidence supporting its cause. The Adversary fails to produce an iota of evidence in its defense; yet Justice decides in Adversary’s favor. One wonders like the meandering sound of this song that winds and turns as it delivers the pompous notes that fall upon the opportunistic endeavor, what is actually happening here? There is, however, within FIGHT periods of tranquility before resumption of the fight i.e., the calm before the ensuing storm. Enjoy the lovely enticing trills and carefully articulated notes produced by Papa’s sax. He moves up and down the musical scale with ease. The outcome of the fight is determined by a tortuous, complex and devious reasoning as depicted by the range of notes in FIGHT’s arrangement. Nevertheless, a battle may have been won but not the war. Stay tuned to Papa. “Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war.” Donald Trump 4. WIN “The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.” Patrick Henry Papa begins WIN with the drums simulating hands clapping. Even though other instruments enter on cue, the clapping continues throughout the song giving the impression that something mystical and extraordinary has been achieved. Hearing the aforementioned in such a manner causes you to say to yourself that only God composing through Papa could have orchestrated this instrumental masterpiece. Doesn’t the saxophone’s solo send tingling shivers up and down your spine causing your arms to involuntarily wrap around the body as your legs step high to the collage of piano notes? Now close your eyes and let your soul float in rapturous ecstasy. Go ahead and say, “Papa Bass, you move me!” The undercurrent message of WIN’s prodigious, gallant and magnanimous beat is that a wrong committed in an original act is corrected by the reaction to it. Recent activity surrounding Adversary causes one to wonder whether it is reaping what it has sown from taking the work(s) of others (including WindowPad) without giving rightful compensation and then profiting from the dastardly despicable deed. Could it be that Adversary has to start correcting the wrong it has done to others in order to eradicate the ominous cloud it is operating under? In light of the aforementioned consider the following biblical verses: (a) JOB 4:8 states, “As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it.” [Adversary] (b) GALATIANS 6:7-8 relates, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows that he will also reap.” (c) PSALM 126:5 states that “Those who sew in tears will reap with songs of joy.”[Entities hurt by Adversary] “As for me, I would seek God, and to God would I commit my cause,” JOB 5-8 [WindowPad] 5. WINDOWPAD’S IDES As Jesus stated, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven (LUKE 18:25). By dealing with Adversary who chooses to tramp all over the rights of WindowPad rather than admitting that WindowPad beat Adversary to the marketplace and settling amicably, WindowPad understands the meaning of Jesus’s statement i.e., A rich man believes that he is God and that there is no higher entity than himself. Hence, the rich man does what he wants and entices others to do his bidding even if it harms them. This is why the introduction to WINDOWPAD’S IDES is mournful. The drums keep the beat while the bass guitar, acoustic guitar and saxophone tell a sad story. You are shaking your head from side to side by the time the trumpet enters with a solo that wakes you up and makes you stand remembering the magnificent power of God that brought Pharaoh –a very rich man-down to his knees via the ten plagues and forced him to do the right thing. EXODUS 7-11. Thus, as WINDOWPAD’S IDES concludes, raise your hands in praise. “Capital as such is not evil; it is its wrong use that is evil.” Mahatma Gandhi 6. DESPOT, FERRET, DUCK AND FESTER DESPOT, FERRET, DUCK AND FESTER reminds you of the silent film comedy era Keystone Kops. They could not see the forest for the trees. These policemen continually got caught up in the small details and failed to understand the bigger picture. When they finally caught a glimpse of what was happening right in front of them it was usually too late. A brief description of the DESPOT, FERRET, DUCK AND FESTER characters that resemble the Keystone Kops is presented below: 1. DESPOT-A person with absolute power and exercising it tyrannically. Benevolent despots consider themselves to be shepherds of people but still require them to be submissive like sheep. 2. FERRET-When excited a ferret performs what is commonly called the weasel war dance, a frenzied series of steps hopping sideways and bumping into objects often accompanied by a soft clucking noise. Incidentally, weasel is a synonym for ferret. Relating the characteristics of a weasel to a human, the American Heritage Dictionary states that a weasel “is a person regarded as sneaky or treacherous.” 3. DUCK-A derivative of “ducan” which means to bend down low to get underneath something or to dive. Because ducks are found in places with water they are also called waterfowls. Their webbed feet are designed for swimming and they possess waterproof feathers. In addition, not all ducks quack some SQUEAL. Anyone nicknamed duck will usually possess all of the characteristics previously cited. 4. FESTER-Uncle Fester is an incorrigible member of the fictional TV program entitled “The Addams Family.” He possesses a bald head with pig-like dark sunken eyes, a large barrel-shaped physical appearance, pudgy hands and wears a deranged devilish smile. Fester seems to carry an electrical charge and can illuminate a light bulb by sticking it in his mouth. Needless to say, his behavior is often very bizarre. Look at these characters running around in the aura of Papa Bass’s musical picture holding all of the facts in their hands but can’t put them together in a manner that would mean something. DESPOT, FERRET, DUCK AND FESTER is full of mirth and simply delightful. The music causes you to laugh and dance while visualizing the theatrics of the characters. Have fun!! “An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.” Mahatma Gandhi”

“HIGH COTTON HIGH COTTON is just one way of saying success in life or living the high life. This success can take many forms: monetary success, prosperous ideas, success at home or in business, successful personal or business relationships. However, there is also the type of success that results from patiently planting seeds and having the fruits of your labor stored in God’s storehouse to be used in whatever manner necessary to bring forth your highest good that not even you could have conceived of; and thereby, subsequently pouring a bountiful fortuitous wealth into your hands. The music in HIGH COTTON exudes the latter type of success. The song titles speak for themselves. Each title describes not only the music you will hear but the feeling that will be evoked as well. For example, imagine wearing the best tuxedo and prancing to the beat of CUMMERBUND after you have just sold your “work product”/creation to the HIGHEST BIDDER. Don’t forget to say “THANK YOU.” 1. BOUNTIFUL-High-stepping gaiety presented by the classy piano accompanied by plenty of strong brassy high pitched notes. 2. THE GOZ LIFE -Smooth articulate piano chords that create the mood of gliding from one happy adventure to another. 3. HIGH COTTON-Swing with the majestic organ that calls to the background brass to come forth and respond in kind. Life is good! 4. CUMMERBUND-Proudly, Papa Bass uses the electric piano’s precise notes to paint prancing steps upon the canvas of your mind’s third eye and thrills the heart. CUMMERBUND personifies Papa’s admirableness. 5. HIGHEST BIDDER GETS THE COTTON-Imagine the many voices bidding for cotton as the interplay of instruments but in a rhythmic fashion finally yielding to one voice. This is the exuberant winner of the cotton i.e., the Highest Bidder. 6. THANK YOU-Melodious and warm.”
