A moody and lyrical piece by top-flight musicians. Koppel's sax cuts through the darkness created by Vitous's bowing. Dahl's piano creates shards of light accented by the tiny burst of pitter patter rain from the tap and wash of Pasborg's drums. So beautiful.
Learning Jazz gave me a masters degree in music. Jazz is American Classical Music, came
out of a need to be heard, to be understood, a voice when black America did not have one.
This is why the music is more than just an art form, it was created from blood, guts and heart
of those who suffered in this world. Its not to be taken lightly. If you do take it lightly it will
never sound right. Thank you to all the courageous musicians who made the world hear
them, their innovation came out of their experiences of the time that they lived. A treasure to
the world. American Classical Music. Imitate, Assimilate, Innovate a quote by Clark Terry.
