In 2002, after writing the first verse and chorus to my very first Bluegrass work, another unique idea came to mind. With the new Bluegrass piece contributing to a new collection in
my song catalogue, the unique idea had been this: Each genre needs to have its very own motto, and it should be a motto that would represent that particular genre of music. I liked the idea a great deal; it was unique, distinctive. And so I went with it.
The mottos would be slogans that would individually define the meaning of each genre in the catalogue. For example, the Bluegrass collection would feature the motto, "These Fast Pickins
Ain't Slim," whilst the R&B collection's motto would be, "Passionately Romantic and Sensual," etc.
The aforementioned examples are only two representations of the Cat
Ellington Genre Slogan, integrated into my body of musical work in August, 2002.
