All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
In 2003, the Dreyfus Jazz label released Divine Radiance, an album by guitarist Tisziji Muñoz. With a beauty and intensity comparable to Carlos Santana, John McLaughlin, Vernon Reid, and Sonny Sharrock, Muñoz alternately soothes and riles in the grand tradition of ruminative and ecstatically charged free jazz. The title track and "Initiation by Fire" are particularly tempestuous examples of joyously improvised volcanism. Divine Radiance combined the energies of master percussionist Rashied Ali, saxophonists Pharoah Sanders and Ravi Coltrane; bassists Cecil McBee and Don Pate, and David Letterman's house keyboardist Paul Shaffer, who also produced the album.

Recorded at Right Track Studios in New York on October 30, 2001, this was Muñoz's response to the toppling of the World Trade Center and the mass murders that occurred elsewhere on the same day. His prayer is for Divine Radiance to emanate from each of us in order to counteract the horror and suffering which humanity persists in perpetrating upon itself.

    Divine Radiance...Five Stars

    If Jesus played guitar, perhaps you would get Tisziji Munoz. When one listens to conventional "music" the experience can be that of being hit, eviscerated and enervated. In short, "hits" can suck....physically ! "Music" collections accumulate and they don't satisfy in an Ultimate way.... because senses habituate. Real Music must use the medium of the senses to communicate That Which transcends the senses. The only way this can possibly be done is through unity between That Which plays, That Which is played, and That Which hears. Is there a real Music (with a capital M) that does not leave one feeling like one has just eaten chocolate, Twinkies, and ice cream washed downed with Coca Cola and that won't habituate the senses ? Is there a real Music that can combine positive elements of sound and silence ? Is there a real Music that yields perfect Satisfaction ? If one listens to real Music with only the heart, one is healed, enlightened and energized, and one realizes that there is only Greatness, and all of us are That. If one listens to real Music with only the heart, allowing oneself to feel one's own fear, sorrow, and anger, the safe context of the Music will allow these to be transformed, released and transcended into heights of light, beauty and ecstasy. If one listens to real Music with only the heart, desiring God, such music simultaneously and paradoxically has the timeless quality of Silence. The true Artist must be a mirror to his listeners allowing them to see their own ugliness, negativity, and foolishness, and, in the moment that the listener transcends these things, the mirror becomes a window to God. If we consent to let the Spirit move in us as freely, fully, and happily as It moves in Tisziji and friends, we will find that Love's will is done, always, already, and only. Did you get what you wanted for Christmas ? What one always, already and only wants for Christmas is the Divine. Have you found what you seek for in Music ? What one always, already and only seeks for in Music is the Divine. You will find It in this CD...five stars.
