Music that Moves You

Saturday evening I saw Marc Copland and Bruce Dunlap at the Gig, a tiny music space in Santa Fe. The music was transcendent. There was a quiet but thrilling dance between the piano and the guitar; there was harmony even in the dissonance. There is something that Copland does as a jazz pianist that others haven't found. There is a shuniya within his sound--a silence, a stillness. The beauty of watching his hands play a single note--and hearing the difference between two hands playing that single note and then one hand. The dance.

And Bruce, what more can be said about him. He can play anything and make it look so easy.

If Copland comes to your neighborhood--go!
