Recorded in my home studio, this project is the best of about three years of creative work exploring my roots in blues-based rock, straight ahead jazz and jazz-rock fusion. The songs are instrumental ranging from blues to rock to fusion to jazz to reggae to who knows what. They reflect my love of rhythm and melody. In my listening, my writing and my playing I forever seek soul-satisfying music that moves body, heart, and mind.
"And what about spirit," you may ask? To me, spirit infuses every aspect of our humanity (no aspect is separate from any other, anyway) so is implied.
Why make this CD? Why do plants grow? Inner necessity is probably the best answer. life seems to make better sense when i am being creative. The life of an artist is a spiritual one: creature, however inadequately, imitating creator. i am the caretaker, not the source. What you will hear is mine only insofar as the desire to create has been given to me and i have gratefully tended it.
