His name, like his music, is brazen texture. The music, the art, and the moods he creates all seem to come from a gentle yet razor-sharp depth of keen focus, perception and soul. Respect for the mysteries of sound. Rich, brown, indeed.
There must be some kind of magic in his spirit. If you are lucky enough to play in his bands, play his music, be inspired by his directing and his artistic direction, the “where he is going”-ness, and what his messages are saying, as it is all generously shared, then you are endlessly charmed.
I’ll say it again: Rhere must be some kind of magic in his spirit. The deepest magic of the Fae. Grand gestures of nuance.
