This album is a prayer. A prayer for me, my family and our community. The music and poetry explore seven principles: Faith, Hope, Love, Peace, Beauty, Respect and Determination. These principles give birth to eleven meditations.

Album Description

The concept of Love is explored from different angles throughout. The opening poem looks at God as a mother ascending to earth. She, the Supreme Being, creates life from love. We, the children, blossom and are inspired by our core. At the core of each of us, there is Beauty. The beauty within is unique. Our “imperfections” make us beautiful. Listen as waves of energy flow from one musician to the next representing the energy we receive from the sun that creates a path with beauty all around us. Guiding us on our path is the unseen hand. She knows our heart. Faith is confident that we will succeed no matter how impossible the situation might seem. She is aware of our stumbling blocks. She simply asks us to believe. We must believe in the dream we have for ourselves. Hope steps in and reminds us that despair is not a dream’s reality. When we are in pain, she still shines like a warm Caribbean sun. Feel the rhythm hope nurtures in your spirit. ​ The spirit of Love has been around as long as time. The folk like melody has been passed down over centuries. We listen to love. The essence is in the roots that support the trees. It’s in the air we breathe. It’s between lovers. The exchange is simple at times and complex at others. Love is challenging us to be our best. As we navigate life, road blocks challenge our spirit. Determination becomes the force to remove the obstruction. As the melody goes through twists and turns, we finally arrive at our destination together. When we arrive, we realize that chaos might exist on the outside but true Peace begins within. The counterpoint of conflicts blend into consonant harmony. The harmony represents the peace inside us. With inner peace, the ultimate truth is revealed. The discovery? The Gift of You is a blessing. Our blessings cultivate Love and Respect. After listening and meditating to the music and poetry, we must just love (divine, self, family and community)… Reginald Cyntje April 2013

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
