daily reminders

• Been reading this book, “the art of practicing” which has been illuminating…

“Use the muscular force that is necessary only…in other words, don’t lift a feather as if you were lifting 500 pounds.”  This may be common sense but in the heat of the moment in performance, it’s easy to forget this.

• I also saw in my notebook a quote by the amazing tango composer Astor Piazzolla (combined tango with jazz/classical music and created amazing compositions)

which I agree with 100%  (paraphrasing here):

“I bring all the elements of life into my music – the romance, the street fight, the lyrical, the ugly, and so on…”
