The Wonders of Music

We were watching PBS' Independent Lens program last week to again see the excellent documentary, Muscle Shoals, about the recording studios and musicians there who gave southern soul and southern rock music there unique sounds. When it was finished a short came on about a Tokyo-born musician who fell in love with Bluegrass then Country music through the classic and country roots sound of Jimmie Rodgers. It was called Waiting for a Train, after Rodgers classic signature tune.

It shows the power and wonder that music can cause in people. It causes the mind to explore, expand, and be changed forever. Each of us has a song or two that has done that to us. I went online and found that the whole 20-minute documentary is posted so I here share it with you.

Enjoy- and keep smiling.
