During this very difficult time in our lives, I want to share some ethereal music to help lift everyone’s spirits. I chose these songs as a form of prayer to bring you some inner peace and hope. Included in this special collection is “Makiri,” my favorite song composed by my teacher Katsuya Yokoyama. In its title and musical phrases, “Makiri” best expresses our universal need for a literal “musical purification ” to rid hate and suffering in the world. I included many of my favorite traditional musical pieces as well as songs that I composed over the years that I feel will raise our spirits and bring us inner peace and joy. I hope you will enjoy the music that I recorded with the assistance of the late Nobutoshi Sone in Yokohama, Japan at the beautiful Kanagawa Art Hall.
