my faith



I love jazz music but more importantly I love to play jazz guitar. I enjoy the physicality needed to create the music : the touch of my fingers on the string and the ebony fingerboard, the movement of my arched hand along the neck, my fingers instinctively falling into various complex positions, the incessant exploration of new chords and formulaic musical patterns in a solo improvisation.

I enjoy the sensation of having the instrument rest against my chest and of the resulting vibrations of notes filtered through the guitar. Performing on the guitar takes me deep within myself in "the interior life" as some have called it, a place of silence, a place of sacredness, a place where we get a glimpse of our true image and of the interconnectedness of all things.

I guess this phenomenon exists in all acts of creation when they are explored with the deepest integrity, sincerity and reverence.
