In this edition:
A bit o blues
Your moment of zzzzzzhhen
I keep getting reminded that here in America we have created a totally disjointed musical situation for ourselves, but it’s ot like this elsewhere in the world.
In Brazil, people still sing in the streets together. Folks who build houses for a living - no matter where they live - usually get together to jam at night. Europe might be full of conservatories, but it’s also full of working people with normal jobs who get together and play string quartets for fun.
Like ya do..
It’s not all about the gig or making a record. Music is a practice of self-integration, connection, health and adventure. Why do I keep practicing and exploring when the gigs dry up? Because my aliveness demands it.
I gather my sound and make my offering. To not do so would open my days up to unbearable sameness, disconnect and disease.
So let’s keep playing.
Your moment of zen
Big love to your ears.
