Publisher Description

In Reaching Beyond, Buddhist thinker and activist Daisaku Ikeda explores the origins, development,

and international influence of jazz with legendary artists Herbie Hancock

and Wayne Shorter.

Reflecting on their lives and careers, Mr. Hancock and Mr. Shorter share

the lessons they have learned from their musical mentors, including Miles

Davis and Art Blakey, and how the Buddhist philosophy they’ve learned

from President Ikeda over the past forty years deeply resonates with the

emancipatory spirit of jazz.

These wide-ranging conversations include such thought-provoking topics as:

• Music’s mission for peace in a time of discord

• The importance of the artist’s spiritual growth

• The Buddhist concept of changing poison into medicine

• Ways to make the “ideal America” a reality for everyone

Reaching Beyond offers positive new ideas

for musicians and nonmusicians alike.
