Can Straight ahead jazz, today's so called smooth jazz and world music insipre a new form of healing music?

In his CD release, "UP FROM THE ROOTS", Chuk brings forth the sheer motivating power of music by infusing the beliefs and values of indigenous people from around the world. He ties all of their collective wisdom into one global community in a quest we all seek: to have a life of purpose.

-

Throughout this release we follow the movement of the music as it reflects man's passage through life. From the days of our youth, to nurturing a family, and finally to our conscious understanding of what life means to us. These transitions are captured in featured songs such as "Grandpa's Stroll" where Chuk's memories and experiences of feeling comforted, protected and supported during walks with his grandfather have led to the foundation of his relationships with other people. In "Celestial Man", we explore the relationship of man to the universe; the wholistic truth of man's undeniable connection to all creation and what a true blessing that is.

UP FROM THE ROOTS is a remarkable album from one unparalled perspective. While most albums focus on a certain time period of problems in your life, Chuk Fowler has chosen to reflect not only on the positive aspects of one's younger days, but on all the days to come in the future.
