471: The Sensual Everafter

Rainbow Children (2001)
The narrative at the start provides the context: The Wise One (Prince) and the Muse (his second wife Manuela) become flesh of one flesh in the “sensual everafter” and what follows is an instrumental soul-bath. Exfoliating guitars stripping away emotional dirt from your pores. A jazz-funk deep clean. Two minutes in and you’ve left the Isolation tank and roaming Venus, pulled by black swans and jamming Green Manalishi with Jimi and Jesus, as Saint Santana riffs on the Song of Songs. Then it ends. It’s brief. But for an ecliptical moment you’re in the shadow of greatness.
