Haiku Journey Through The 20th Century brings together the author’s deep knowledge of music with his poetic craft rendered in the form of the Japanese Haiku. Within these pages you will be taken through a unique musical excursion that begins in the year 1900 and ends in 1999, each year sign-posted by one instrumental and one song. These are not necessarily musical pieces that have landed on the critics’ best-sellers lists (although most have); they are songs and instrumentals that have impacted the author in personal ways. The Haikus are meditations on the music and are accompanied by short commentaries that highlight some of the historical and social background of each piece and the significance that they hold for the author. All these pieces of music are available for your listening pleasure on CD, vinyl, and through online digital media.
