LOOK TO THE
MUSIC FIRST....THE REST WILL LINE UP.
Innocence is a beautiful state,but to play this music, in today's enviroment takes
all a person can muster.
Today more than ever...we are in a wealth of information.
Everything is printed and available.
All the tunes you need to know are somewhere within' a flip of a computer button.
Then there's the issue some of us face...like I do...of being your own booking
agent and manager.
It can be devistating,and real havok on you and your personal life.
BRING ME BACK TO A JAZZ REALITY,OR SAXOPHONE BASED REALITY..I ask myself this
What happened to MY childish delight in music?
But it is still there, hidden, almost forgotten some daze , overcome with a thousand
pressures and responsibilities.
Many spiritual paths teach us that we must withdraw from the world in order to
find ourselves anew, but few can afford do this.The plane from Philly to a beach
in Jamica seems like a cool idea...but I need to make a living !?!
Complexity theory gives us another way.
The state of being overwealmed by details corresponds to a chaotic state, with
too many connections active.
To allow ourselves to re-create the imagination of youth,as when we first started
to play our horns, we need to restrict the information we take in. .
Pick up your sax and....close your eyes and....WAIL.
Let the horn moan, scream,cry,talk...let the passion out...also drain yourself
of your issues today.
Your holding one of the most powerful pills to your sanity ever developed-THE
No kidding...go in a corner...listen to yourself...forget what you need to know....just
be GLAD you know what you do!!!
Let the horn go. Play.......wail, honk and scream. Let it out!!
The more we know, the more novelty we can generate, the closer then we can approach
that ideal state of a perfect and exciting life that we surely all desire.
Excitement in life is to be found !
Look to the MUSIC first...the rest will line up.
