Stream: Naran Ratan’s Trees Etc.

There is so much to be said for small things, for things whose claim to nature is struck in quieter gestures. This is the essence of ‘the moment,’ when for an instant we find ourselves captivated, in awe, or simply amused. And when the instant passes as discretely as it arrived, we’re reminded of the importance of having opened up, even if we weren’t aware that we were doing so, to all of the small and beautiful things that make up our lives.

Naran Ratan’s “Trees Etc.” is an astute reminder of all this – a brief collection of spiritual jazz miniatures and beginner clarinet compositions released on Tasty Morsels  this last week. “Trees Etc.” is available for streaming below or for download here.    – Joe McMurray
