What’s This All About?
This blog is dedicated to my daily musical adventures, serving at any given time as a sounding board for my works-in-progress, a reflection on the musician’s lifestyle in the here and now, a lightning rod to spark engrossing conversation and critical thinking, as well as a place to call attention to music, artists, analyses, and other material that I hope you find as exciting as I do! For those who carry with them the conviction that music is an indispensable way of life, you’re in very, very good company; welcome.
