“City Night Speak” appears on the album Sacred Paths by Asia Jazz Project featuring Molina Soleil & Aju (2009)
If I remember right, this is the last track we recorded for Sacred Paths, summer 2009. Sacred Paths is a HEAVY music project, coded in spiritual life/love lessons. I felt like it needed a fun track.
This is as FUN as Sacred Paths gets. HA!
In many ways, the city is emblematic of DESTRUCTION and CHAOS. Little is natural or organic in city life… except of course human interaction. Cities bread possibility, creativity, opportunities for interpretation. The city is sexy and limitless. I guess the same can be said about the forest or the countryside.
But you can’t deny the charm of the city. The smell. The grit. City lights and movement. Countless lives converging and rewriting the standards. Potential. This is what I reached for as I wrote my verse from my Northside Denver apartment.
