The fine arts have always been supported by smaller populations of
refined citizens who appreciate aesthetics and have a natural affinity
for cultural enrichment. Due to modern society’s unhealthy obsession
with lewd commercialism, the most popular perceptions of music these
days are based on entertainment values. The true science and art of
organized sound, movement and color are rarely considered in the
production of music promoted to the largest segment of the population
for mere entertainment purposes. Holistic benefits of music to the
sub-conscious mind, psyche and soul, begins with distinguishing the
purposes of art and entertainment and making conscious efforts to refine
the listening process. Since music is primarily an auditory medium, the
aforementioned benefits are usually sacrificed for physical excitement
and energy generated by hype, hoopla and visual sensationalism in the
world of entertainment.
Of the many different genres and categories in commercial music today,
so-called jazz is the most influential world wide, yet the lack of
economic support gives the impression that jazz is the least appreciated
music art form in America even though the National Endowment for the
Arts has declared jazz a National Treasure. As a result, jazz artists
(true to the art form) rarely experience the commercial success enjoyed
by artists primarily known for their association with more popular music
genres. However, the natural freedom and versatility of expression
associated with music commonly referred to as jazz, opens up realms of
spiritual possibilities that have yet to be fully explored.
LifeForce Jazz is a collective of artists dedicated to exploring healing
powers associated with natural creativity and spontaneity in music.
While we recognize and even appreciate some commercial values in music
entertainment, we also realize and understand the higher calling to
produce music with a greater purpose. Although it is a continuous
struggle, most LifeForce Jazz artists balance time between involvement
with entertainment music for day-to-day survival and creating more
spiritually inspired music for artistic satisfaction, peace of mind and
even physical well being. Projects featured on this website are personal
visions and wellness experiences of producing artists, not driven by
commercial appeal. Yet, the caliber of artistry and quality of
production makes it possible for projects to gain a modicum of
commercial success. The bottom line is, this is not "art for arts' sake"
and the natural laws governing scientific approaches to this method are
universal. It is about achieving and maintaining wellness through the
prescribed application of the appropriate combinations of sound
vibrations (music), also perceived as healing remedies for the soul. We
believe music heals the soul!
