“Lotus Blossom” is a magical composition written by the great Billy Strayhorn. Duke Ellington used to close concerts with this unique piece. The version presented here is dedicated to the memory of my friend and mentor Master Musician Jerry Granelli, whose brush work and positive aspect shined through the Peanuts score music as the drummer for the Vince Guaraldi Trio. Jerry spoke often of the Buddhist principle of “Nowness”- of committing to each unique individual moment. It is in Jerry’s memory that I present this sweet version of “Lotus Blossom.” Enjoy.
