Music as inspiration

I love listening to KMHD here in Portland & have developed a deep affinity for all things jazz.  I heard this band Skydive Trio for the first time while running errands this week & immediately pulled over to the nearest spot under a shady tree to take the sound in.  Everything I love in music is contained here in this one song titled Bravo.

Music has been a form of inspiration & muse for almost every creative medium since the beginning of, well, music.  Hearing this song, it captures the essence of what I aspire to evoke in my line of clothing I'm working on;  fluid, calm, transcendent with an innate sense of something we know to be true & real.  What a beautiful musical treat. Happy Sunday!
