Force of Nature
'The Force of Nature' is an instrumental blend of Jazz, Funk, Latin and Rock featuring guitar and piano as lead melodic and harmonic entities. Coupled with syncopated percussive rhythms, 'The Force of Nature' will take you on an eclectic journey seldom traveled. To paraphase the great martial artist and Jeet Kune Do master, Bruce Lee: 'To believe in one style of anything is like going through life blindfolded. Absorb what is useful from all walks of life and flow with it, become water. Water flows or water can crash. Ease the burden of your mind.' Relax and enjoy 'The Force of Nature.'
