MindTravel: A Mesmerizing Soundtrack to Central Park

Last month, I filmed a unique and interesting piano concert in Central Park. The pianist, Murray Hidary, played on a digital grand piano that was amplified through the use of headphones. All audience members were given pairs of headphones, so they could hear what was coming out of the piano.

This series of concerts is called MindTravel, an immersive musical experience that takes place in iconic theaters and beautiful outdoor spaces including Central Park. Gorgeous and provocative real-time piano compositions are performed, spontaneously improvised, and infused with wisdom traditions, theoretical physics, and the power of communal elevation.

The experience was conceived and created by Mr. Hidary, a multi-disciplinary artist and tech pioneer. His purpose-driven approach is at the heart of his business successes, acclaim as a visual artist, and global recognition as a musician. Ever pushing boundaries and guided by a strong desire to help people find their purpose, Mr. Hidary is now focused on taking MindTravel across the globe while also crafting his next project, "No Dream Left Behind." Save the date for his next New York City concert on Sunday, September 24th. For more information about Murray Hidary and MindTravel, please visit the official website at http://mindtravel.com.

Interplay Jazz Orchestra Rocks Historic Birdland

Recently, I had the privilege of filming the amazing Interplay Jazz Orchestra, performing in front of a sold out audience at the historic Birdland Jazz Club in New York City.

Co-directed by trumpeter Gary Henderson and trombonist Joey Devassy, Long Island's Interplay Jazz Orchestra performs original compositions and arrangements written by several members of the band. The group performs a monthly residency at The Jazz Loft in Stony Brook, NY, as well as a bi-monthly performance at Treme in Islip, NY. Some of the band's members can also be seen playing and subbing with some of the most famous big bands in the world, including The Birdland Big Band and The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra.

The band's latest release, "Detour," peaked at #4 on the CMJ Jazz Radio Charts in 2016 and stayed there for almost a month. It was listed at #9 for the 2016 calendar year. The album received a four star rating from All About Jazz. Dan Bilawsky stated in the publication, "The Interplay Jazz Orchestra ... completely outdoes itself with Detour." The Interplay Jazz Orchestra hits the studio this summer to record their third full-length album.
