"Only the blind from birth can truly appreciate music."
19 July 2020 | by Ren-JazSee all my reviews

I feel that I am an odd one out. I find the dancing to be odd, awkward, and boring -- so unpleasant that it almost degrades the quality of the great music, which works better as somewhat of a tone poem. Putting the music to film, play the music over a stark black screen and imitate the scene in Ratatouille of Remy eating cheese and a strawberry; or close your eyes and imagine an uncluttered American west.
