There’s Me And There’s You


The Matthew Herbert Big Band – There's Me And There's You: Matthew Herbert writes “In an age of such infinite and brilliant possibilities of technique, combined with the urgent politics of now, why have music and musicians lost the urge to challenge, investigate, invent and unite? Without the backbones of principle and enquiry, music is sounding more and more like the background to a non-stop Ford commercial”

“we, the undersigned, believe that music can still be a political force of note, and not just the soundtrack to over-consumption” — if he can generalize that if-or-else to “healing force” (ie Yue) then I’m with him 100%
