Six words I wished for my newest and 20th album, coming out next month. I carried these words with me throughout all the performance sessions, mixing hours, and mastering process. Yes, this piece of paper went everywhere, even on the piano hile I was singing and playing. The songs were all composed on various visits to the Northern California coast, where the redwoods kiss the ocean. As with every new album, one hopes to continue to expand the musical consciousness. What does that mean? To open wider, to go deeper, to love more, to let all the nectar flow out — to you, to become aware of our connection and our unity.
