Transparency: Pinot Noir Meets Ben Webster

Welcome back to Jazz & Juice—after last month's venture into the opulent, it's a perfect time to venture into the idea of less being more. When something is transparent, we see beyond it. In a way, transparency gives us another dimension of appreciation; we not only experience the object or the work that we are seeing through, but also what is behind it. Seeing, or hearing, through something means experiencing its causes and influences, whether that be breath, earth, or simply the truth. In music and wine when a sound or taste reveals more than it disguises, its a hallmark of mastery.
