“Pearline”, by Dorian Wood, is one of my favorite songs in the entire world.
In this recording of Pearline, Dorian has crafted an artistic achievement that penetrates right into the center of my heart with a warmth and gravity I cannot describe. What is more, I am honored to have contributed to the making of this music. Indeed, some of the low, sustained humming sounds you hear throughout are the reeds of my accordion. Never mind this detail, however.
I simply want to share this song with you because it is a work of utterly humbling and stunning beauty. And because words fail me. After all, is that not the value of deep listening? To be rendered speechless?
Stop what you are doing. Listen…
