Jazz and the longing that leads to hope
This is the only podcast that I have felt compelled to go back to and listen to every episode. I find it consistently compelling and evocative. It dives headlong into the pain and brokenness of our current situation and addresses it with an almost ruthless commmitment to the beauty of truth and the truth of beauty. And though it does not resolve on the superficial, frequently saccharine, Bflat, but the counterintuitively more satisfying Bflat7 (thank you Julian Reid for the theory behind the heartbreaking longing driving blues/jazz), yet I am lead out, stumbling into hope --against hope, as Miroslav reminds us in the episodes by that name. Julian's description of the haunting exilic nature of blues reminded me of the Hebrew genius of Lamentations, written, so I am told, so as to evoke the limping gait of the exiled Jew being led from Israel to Babylon, weeping all the way. And yet in the lament -- hope. Can't thank you all enough.Read full review »
