I wrote these words a while back on my old blog, but I find their relevance to my life eternal:

There is a song, a piece of music that won’t leave my ears. Every time I hear it the world slows down and silence gains new meaning. This music creates distance and yet lures you in ever so slowly. The composer is Yoko Kanno and the piece is titled Space Lion. As the song unravels it accomplishes what every gentle piano work ever tried to do but in a novel way. This song, which starts above the clouds and spans an impressive lineage of music, becomes the historical trace. It is old and new at the same time, its influences are obvious yet its origins elusive. Give it a spin.
