The older we get and the more we play improvised, instrumental music, we tend to attribute meaning to it, almost spiritually. I’m focussing here on instrumental because vocal music is different in the sense we can easily attach meaning by thinking about the lyrics of the song.

To be discussed: Pat Metheny, John Coltrane, Salif Keita, Youssou NDour, Baaba Maal

Daniel Barenboim

Some might even call it “faux spirituality”, to attribute a deep meaning and truth to life from some patterns of frequencies
