From John: Dear Listener, Thank you for your interest in my music and my playing. I hope you enjoy the songs as well as the musicianship on this CD. It has been 3 years since I recorded my last solo CD, World Time. It has been a time of much growth and learning- both personally and musically. So, this CD reflects my new experiences and learning over the past 3 years. I learned that for me, the reason for recording and playing music is in the ‘doing’, and for what it does for my spirit. I hope this comes across to you, the listener, as well.

The last few years have also found me learning about meditation. I found that through meditation I could connect to my spirit and clear my head of all thoughts, thus preparing myself to play and record better. Doing this CD has been an unbelievable journey, from building a small studio in my house and then learning how to operate all the gear, to finding writers to write me songs in which I could express myself fully. From choosing the right players, and organizing the arrangements, to rehearsing the band. At the same time, keeping my own drumming in the best shape possible. Since I did not write most of the songs on this CD, each song became a separate project of its own. Therefore, taking a little more time, but having a greater end result. The result being that I could customize each song to have the musicians I felt would sound best.

Some words on the meaning of the title: Each of us has a “Dharma,” a purpose in life. When we are in Dharma we love and enjoy our work. Drumming is my Dharma. We should also use our Dharma to help benefit others, so I hope this CD brings many people joy. I am also donating a percentage from each CD sale to cancer research. “Everyone has a purpose in life … a unique gift or special talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals”. Deepak Chopra

Once again, thanks for listening and enjoy!
