Exploring the Blues

Lately I’ve been exploring the blues, which is not an entirely unexpected move for a jazz person to make. After all, blues music is one of the real taproots of jazz, which continues to shape and inform the jazz genre in so many ways.

Specifically my explorations have to do with the ways in which the blues tradition might help us to hear the biblical psalms in new and fresh ways. Though there are clear distinctions between the two, I am increasingly convinced that there are real ways in which they do connect. I’ve been reading, writing, listening, interviewing… and then reading and listening some more. Thanks to the generous hospitality of Brian Walsh and the CRC Campus Ministries/Empire Remixed, on November 2, 2015 I’ll be sharing some of those explorations at an event at Wycliffe College, Toronto. If you happen to be in the area, feel free to drop by. If not? Watch this site over the next month or so, for the audio of the lecture.
