Kuhn, Peter Trio (w/ Kyle Moti / Nathan Hubbard): The Other Shore (NoBusiness)

Label: NoBusiness    
Released in: Lithuania    

"The Other Shore is my first release as leader in over 30 years and features the exceptional talents of drummer- percussionist Nathan Hubbard and bassist Kyle Motl. Having become the foundation for a regular working group, their musicianship and virtuosity is an inspiration and elevates our musical dialog as it continues to develop. I'm grateful to NoBusiness for the opportunity to have our music heard and for their high standard of excellence. I hope this music is a testament to humanities great capacity for healing, transformation, and joy. In Buddhist terms, we leave the shore of ill-being (ignorance, samsara) to cross over to "the other shore" of well-being (understanding, nirvana). In improvised music, every sound and element has value in the collective improvisation. If I have a message, it's that the same is true in our lives. Everything has spiritual value if we have the eyes and ears to make use of it. Our capacity for liberation is unlimited, and I hope this music helps you, the listener, on the path."-Peter Kuhn

Peter Kuhn is ordained in the Plum Village Zen Buddhist tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. He remains active in helping others find freedom from addiction and in the Prison Meditation Project of San Diego, California.
