Sunday Morning Thoughts

Sunday, November 04, 2018

Music can be an antidote to the political storm howling around us.Swedish musicians, Hanna Enlöf and Ylva Eriksson, who record and perform as Good Harvest, prove again that one plus one can be far more than the sum of their parts.

Miles Davis: Autumn Leaves

Sunday, October 21, 2018

It’s been reported that Miles Davis didn’t think the tunes on his Autumn Leaves album, a mix of studio and live songs, were good enough to release in the late 1960s.This album once again reminds us that Miles's music, considered not good enough to get released back in the day, is certainly good enough to knock our socks off in 2018.

Celebrating September, David Foster & Friends

Sunday, September 23, 2018

As we watch today's innovative technology unite the world it seems that the hearts of men are growing more distant from each other.

He publishes books and essays regularly on power and imagination, science and religion, ecology, money and politics, future and happiness.
