Some Music We Made

“Some Music We Made,” the latest CD from the collaborative No End of Now is now available and getting great reviews and comments from fans which I greatly appreciate. It feels really good to have another project come to fruition with the associations I get to make with some of the best musicians in the area. The other players is the part that adds so much to what I do - hearing what happens to written tunes and small ideas with the addition of unique and creative voices - the music takes on a life of it’s own. Both of the No End of Now records are really conversations between the musicians involved that took place in a short span of time - “Some Music We Made” was recorded in two days and “Pieces Together” in 2 hours! It is like getting to see an old friend and getting caught up - I walk away gratified and feeling connected to something beyond myself. Jason Stander and John Tschirhart brought there own voices to the conversation and created a dialogue that was completely spontaneous and absolutely one of the most fun experiences I have ever had in the studio. I hope that those who listen to this record enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it.

Much Peace

Song Insight

Here's some insight on the song "Lunch with the Departed" from my new upcoming album "Some Music We Made" that comes out June 5th - As a melody writer, there are times when something seems to fall from the pencil onto the paper without any effort - this is one of those instances. The inspiration was from a dream I had about having lunch with my mother and grandmother, both of which had died in the previous six months. When recording, we chose not to improvise over the piece because I felt that I could not do the melody justice and there was really nothing more to say.

So Much Music...

With a new CD coming out on June 5th ("Some Music We Made") featuring myself and two great players under the No End of Now name, I am reminded of how voluminous and varied the music is that I want to make. My music may generally fall into the jazz genre, but it really is only about sounds and silences that express the deepest feelings of the performers in that particular moment in time. That, to me, is infinite and magical and defies genre labels and the experience of which is difficult to articulate. Then why am I writing this if it is so hard to explain? Because there truly are some of those magic moments on "Some Music We Made" that can neither be planned nor repeated. And, regardless of record sales, or lack thereof, I am glad we did it and hope that whoever listens to it will share those magical moments with us. The music on "Some Music We Made" represents one aspect of what I do and I am humbled by the talent that I get to work with and I look forward to meeting so many more talented musicians with which to create as many more of those magical moments as I can fit into this lifetime. Much Peace Rex Shepherd
