Kiss lips

When I first started playing jazz on the harp I simply wanted to see if I could …. and also, because my boyfriend said I couldn’t – that it wasn’t possible.

That challenge became a huge part of my life, and led me to fall in love with a bass player who showed me the world of jazz standards – those tunes that everyone knows, like “As Time Goes By.”

And it taught me the beauty of jazz: improvising over a structure — like the beauty of a game which you can play over and over, always with a different outcome.  

Eventually I stopped taking the 75-pound 6-foot tall electro-acoustic blue concert harp out of my studio.   I’d practice on it, but I was performing and recording on the new instrument that was created for me, the 11-pound electric CAMAC harp I could strap on … and that fit in a road case I could easily take on a plane.

But when I made a 4-song digital release of jazz tunes earlier this month, I sat down at that gorgeous instrument and sank back into the pleasure of the jazz standards I’d cut my teeth on.

And you know what I discovered?

You must remember this,
A kiss IS still a kiss …
A sigh is still a sigh.
The fundamental things apply … as time goes by.

… and that’s a lovely thing.
