Next Saturday is the Vipassana CD release concert, May 16 at 8 pm at the Puffin Room (435 Broome Street in SoHo), $15 at the door! It has been a two year journey from our last performance of Vipassana to the studio to this concert and I hope you can come celebrate with us. There will be a reception after the performance and if you haven't already, you can purchase the new CD for a special price! The recording has been getting some good reviews and airplay with more features and reviews already planned for the coming months. I hope you can join us next Saturday for this rare opportunity to hear Vipassana live and for what plans to be a very special performance.

In the Pali language of early Buddhist texts, vipassana means “to see things as they really are.” Today, vipassana is a type of meditation that seeks spiritual clarity and insight through silence. A four-part composition by Joseph C. Phillips Jr. featuring 25 instrumentalists and singers, Vipassana is 60 minutes of “beautiful noise”—a fluid and organic fusion of elements from contemporary classical, jazz, and popular music. As with much of my music, Vipassana humbly seeks to create a sense of wonder and beauty that inspires and enlightens.
