Thoughts and musings ... about music...

Thoughts and musings ... about music...

Whether playing in a small jazz club or performing to a large audience it’s important to be authentic, to play with pure intention, keeping the music honest.  And then invite the listener to write their own story...

Music can color a moment, create safe passage, a comfortable space to rest.  Music evokes emotion -  curiosity, humor, peace and even raw discomfort - pulling and stretching one's ears and imagination.  Music is a vehicle to inspire and transcend our thoughts and impressions of the world.  Music allows us to celebrate our humanness, to expand beyond physical limitation and perhaps unexpectedly, we might even catch sight of our own divinity.

Music is powerfully transcending, and I consider myself richly blessed to be a conduit of its magic.
