“Any musician is a channel, there’s no question in my mind about that…the musician’s job is to do work in a disciplined way and learn as much about music as possible, so that they can get completely out of the way”
“The musician only has one job, and that’s to listen. Listening is the essence of all great musicianship.”
“If we let go, and we get our hands off it, I can sense that the connection between the music itself and the audience gets… bigger.”
“And I can tell you, like in many disciplines, it takes work to let go!”
So by affiliation: The artist only has one job, and that’s to see. Seeing is the essence of all great artistry.
Sounds about right to me! And very Frederick Franck.
Hearing Trey ruminate about musicianship in such a reverent manner made me so grateful that one of my greatest inspirations experiences his own creative process in this sacred manner as well. His devotion inspires my devotion, and in this way, channels can operate together.
