Album Description

Mono no aware, This japanese poetic concept is the wisdom that knows how to recognize beauty in every aspect of experience, even in what we might feel as "negative" elements in nature and in ourselves: such as pain, weakness, lack of sagacity, loneliness and death. Although beauty can be associated with birth and youth, without the parallel shadows of old age and death these "positives" lose their splendor. Mono no aware is to be both saddened and grateful for the transience of things. It is the quietly euphoric, bittersweet sense of having witnessed the extraordinary circus of life - as we observe, aware that nothing lasts in it.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
