The Music

Laurie Lang on Bass

When you hear music, it speaks for itself. Recorded music for me is a sample of what happens “live.” It’s capturing the energy and dynamics of the sound in real time. For those that have the ears to hear it, it’s the space, the notes, the harmony, the expression, the spirituality, the technique, the synergy of the moment.
