about

Celebration of Soul features the The Language of Sound and Spirit band and could be the second volume of the work. Both involve the same core four of musicians and both have contributions from multiple guitar players and dear friends. The Language was about defining the creative hub of the series of 6 albums in 12 months. The series turned into 10 albums in three years. Celebration of Soul brings the creative cycle begun on Incarnate to a completion.

The themes across the 10 albums featuring 50 original compositions with 20 musicians reoccur and are viewed from different angles and instrumentations. Essential to the body of work is the energy of recognition. A recognition of self, as an artist, and a coming to terms with dreams, strengths and limitations. While listening deeply, it's possible to hear beyond the notes to experience the source of music itself. This causes a beautiful interplay of ones own state of being and the expression that brings sound to life. It also dissolves the boarder between the self and creative language of life.

We live in a universe teaming with space and time, yet we live here in this present moment. Every act of beauty, love, art and all forward motion begins in this same present. The moment brims over with the creative impulse. The call to ones inner most self can be a whisper or a roar, but it is always present.

This energy is directly experienceable in sound and particularly in the expressive or spiritual traditions of musical improvisation. That tradition is what Celebration of Soul is about. It is a celebration of the micro and macrocosm, the music's history and our present time.

If you can perceive a way of being, you can become that way of being. Music is a bridge and creates conditions where your next steps appear. Music is a guide for so many and I believe closer to the source than we even suspect. Listen across the rhythms and behind the notes. Your own next steps are just ahead.
