Ed Englerth – SHAKE, RATTLE, and FOLK, and JAZZ and BLUES and More . . . SHAKE . . . Disturbing the warp and woof, shattering the serene, unnerving the unresponsive, rhythms that make you sweat. RATTLE . . . What awakens one from dreams, from that place of comfortable complacency? From the distillation of life in this world come the images from Ed. FOLK . . . Music that verbalizes attitudes and dimensions. Acoustic, it carries the energy from the power of the song rather than the power of the amplifier. JAZZ . . . Freedom to express from the long linage of the soul. BLUES. . . . Refuses to ignore hardship in this life and our response to it.. MORE…. Never ending.
