No Words...


The power of this music
Here is how deep the power of the music we are learning about runs.  An elder trying to describe a musical moment that took place decades ago, is broken down by the force of that experience.  He can't describe it because it goes beyond the boundaries of language.  This is the kind of music that we are all aspiring to create. 

Thank you to Reggie Workman, Art Blakey, and all the other great elders of this music for enriching us with your legacy.
