"My one and only previous encounter with this regal named group was at a Mexican restaurant in the lovely university town of Utrecht, Holland: famous for its church towers and canals. The restaurant was quiet, brick walls on either side of myself and a sweet and smart woman, and old fashioned food that could fill anyone one up. It was our last night together, the end of a inexplicable trip. As we dipped our hands into our shared dish and stared at each other chewing under the soft yellow lights, this was our background music. It grew, to crescendo after crescendo, no without pretention: soul after soul.
All Mexican restaurant music is the same, and the dusty bands are quite satisfied with their role. But this went farther. It grew, it contracted, and it added to the light and shadows of the ordinary space that we happened to be in. I called the waitress over and made her play it again, again, and once more again. No one else in the restaurant seemed to mind, they even stopped talking and they listened."
