On the Sunday Jazz Brunch, Let's Talk With

Lynne Arriale

Air Date: 6/12/2022 

Listen to the interview here.

If you have ever had a medical situation and you interacted with medical staff, maybe at a hospital or urgent care center, you might have wondered about the fact that perfect strangers could be so kind and focused on your well being. With all that is going on in the world, such caring for one another might get drowned out by the sturm and drang contained in the daily news reports.

But there are many places where strangers do care about one another. Lynne Arriale's new CD, The Lights Are Always On, takes inspiration from just such care. A medical professional used that expression to illustrate how staff feel about taking care of those in need: There is always someone ready to help. You are not alone.

Please join me on 6/12/2022 9am ET for a chat with Ms. Arriale about the new CD, how she transitioned from her classical training to become an award-winning jazz pianist and composer, how she composes and arranges her works, and what other artists she likes to listen to. 

For me, as one who is passionate about this music as you may well be, this is simply fascinating stuff. When I listen to a piece of music, such as a number of songs from Ms. Arriale's new CD, I sometimes wonder where the gift comes from, that produces music that can communicate from one person to another and touch each other's soul.

In ancient Greece, the Muses were credited for giving artistic inspiration, and throughout the centuries there is the idea that inspiration comes from a holy place. Why would that be? Perhaps because inspiration and the art it produces is mysterious and powerful, and can move people in deep and profound ways. 

This is what I seek to learn about, and what we may discover from what you may likely consider to be a rather provocative interview with Ms. Arriale, in terms of how the music can have more power when you understand better how it was created. 

Please join me for a deep dive into the music of Lynne Arriale.
