A flow of modern compositions inspired by personal spiritual explorations. The majority of this 6 piece work, Jnana-Vijnana was inspired by an event, in 2012, shortly after I attended a Self-realization seminar with a guru from India, Pujyashree Deepakbhai. That year I had been investigating Schopenhauer vis a vis Wagner and Zen philosophy, eventually leading to regular practice of Yoga and meditation. I had a very strong experience at the seminar, and that culmination yielded the composition and first track entitled Transfigured.
When you aim for a 10x bigger future, suddenly everything gets simpler and easier. Dan Sullivan explains why 10x will transform your thinking and innovation in a way that incremental goals won't. Are you still thinking about growing 10x?
Drummer Dan Brubeck, son of the late Dave Brubeck, pays homage to his parents in a most appropriate way. He puts the proper frame around the songbook created by his mother and father over their 70-year performance career. Using the saxophone quartet format his father blazed jazz trails with, Brubeck leads his quartet through 14 Brubeck originals at Vancouver's Cellar recorded in August 2013. Bassist Adam Thomas proves to be a fine vocalist for the special material, never obscuring the pieces with technical attempts to impress. Urbane and amiable, this collection has been a long time coming and now that it is here, we can fully appreciate the art of Dave and Iola Brubeck.
