Congratulations, Groove Collective

Just wanted to publicly* congratulate Groove Collective on their Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Jazz Album.  Sadly, they didn’t win the thing; that distinction went to some banjo player — again.  More importantly, receiving and being limited to the nomination do not add to nor detract from the fact that they have produced another fine piece of work in “People People Music Music.”  So the real congratulations are for that.  Check’em out.

  1. Tiferet is a Hebrew word signifying”beauty, balance, harmony.” In the Kabbalah, it is the mediating Sephira (“power” through which G-d emanates throughout the “worlds”) between Chesed (lovingkindness) and Gevurah (judgment). Finding this balance has been my life-long struggle in general, in parenting, and in creating (especially music — back when I was composing).

    Tiferet was also the name of my first cat who was black, but had a white chest, the color of which appeared to emanate around her head in a beautiful and brilliant way. So Tiferet has long been an important concept for me, and I was fortunate to be able to register in 1995.

    And I apologize to all the yeshivas, shuls and other Jewish organizations which would like the domain. But it’s not random or without thought that I have named things, including my domain, Tiferet. It’s to remind me of and inspire me to achieve that balance in all areas, especially creative ones, in my life.
