Music is dealing with such deep archetypal material, and those who play don't realize this.

With no intention to disarray, let-me share here a Jung quote about music.
Any thoughts, my friends? :D

Nermin thanks for bringing the quote from Jung; how fascinating.

Cindy what a truely remarkable story that takes that quote and opens up a whole other side Jung and his family!

Sometimes I find myself in a kind of deeply considered reflection about what drew me to this path. " Like a moth to a flame " or " a plant turning towards the sun "; ( as it were ); so strong was it's pull that I felt I had no choice but to follow it.
" Because music is dealing with such deep archetypal material, and those who play don't realize this."
Now I know why! :idea: Thank you both for this insight. 8)

( I just had to borrow this from another post. ) Here is a song that for many may conjure up images and viewpoints from it's many episodes of another time that may have some surprising relevance to alot of todays connudrums. It's history is connected to a movie and television show that impacted a generation.

( BTW: For those unaware; it was a " Comedy "; BUT; it's secret was in the sense of irony woven within the fabric of it's storyline. It truely became one of the most beloved series of all time. :wink: )

Thank you, Cindy and James; this quote truly sounds difficult to decipher
without the story. In fact, there would be no need for music if we could properly
express melodies in verbs.

The best truths cannot be spoken and the second best is often misunderstood.

My musical knowledge isn't to great so maybe most already know Joe B's work but when I run across something like this, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning. :D

Thanks for these links. Such good things.

*MASH* remains therapeutic....the music, the stories, the characters, the wonderful actors....

And yes, tonight and today, we are young. Joe can take us home.

Every once in a while someone passes who was increditbly important to the process of making music but by in large unknown to the general public. The producer is to the recording studio what the conductor is to the orchestra. In many ways they are like a Master Chef mixing in precise amounts and proportion all the right ingredients and then cooking to perfection a meal that is an experience instead of just sustenance. Without them it is mostly just noise with no true sense of direction; refinement, or realized purpose. They are involved in all stages of the product from the beginning to the end. Our world is a better place because of their work because the art is finessed to it's fullest potential. Phil Ramone was one whose career was staggering to consider but as this article states would go largely unnoticed on the street. I never knew him but certainly knew of him because of the respect given by his peers.

For those who may be interested:

Willie's singing on one of the songs!
They're great, IMO :wink:
