About the Album

Release of the fifth single from Erik Borelius' fifteenth album. The Humble One – a tribute to the humble. The Humble One He seldom argues, he rarely fights it makes no difference if he’s wrong or right His voice often gentle in a humble approach thoughtful and candid, not to impose I praise modest people the mindful ones I befriend May their ways be defended from the bullies of this world And let them be free from the desire to impress People who listen rather than speak leave the shallow, experience the deep know how the world is not evolving around them It is not about winning or losing, nor to lecture a friend Life is a giant puzzle, man a tiny piece Sharing his wisdom for the humble to seize Contentment and patience, a rare trait these days yet worth all honor, worth all praise —————————— Erik Borelius sings, plays the instruments, and has made the album art.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
