is it weird that I've never considered myself a Jazz person, but when I put it on in the background at work my productivity increases by about 500%?

Man, music--or the way we respond to it--is fascinating.

Music is fascinating.

Actually, music is the BEST!!!

I love my job. Today, I'll be teaching drums for 8 hours. Everything from reading music to proper drumstick technique to advanced Global Grooves.

Tomorrow, I'll be driving to Florida, where on Saturday, I'm performing at the big Allman Brothers festival. Sharing the stage with Tower of Power, Maceo Parker, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Galactic and more.

Yeah, Music wins!!!

[1] My wife is not a jazz person at all, but absolutely NEEDS it playing when she's working on the finances.

in fact...
here's a radio segment that explores this type of thing with a guy promoting his music/productivity service:

Mr. OK Jazz Tokyo is doing so many wonderful Jazz related things in the Far East. And, he was not only kind enough to buy my new solo percussion CD, but he's going to be playing some of my music on his radio show!

[1] I totally understand that. Got a review from NY that said listening to my new CD made this lawyer feel smarter. I loved that!

I hope you'll listen to my brand of music! You don't even have to go to Tokyo to hear it ; )

[And there's a tribute to Todd Drew on there!]
