Jimmy Greene : Beautiful Life

Jimmy Greene : Beautiful Life

  • $18.98

"My daughter Ana was born on a Tuesday morning in early April 2006. Her life was ended in her first grade classroom on a Friday morning in mid-December - six years, eight months and ten days later. Despite the efforts of many to identify and debate the issues surrounding the Sandy Hook School shooting, an awful reality remains -- there has been a proliferation of heinous, senseless acts of violence in America -- acts that have ravaged my family and the families of so many others across our country. Much attention has been paid to the way in which my precious Ana died, but this album attempts to paint the picture of how she lived -- lovingly, faithfully and joyfully. In a way, this recording also represents a reaction. Not a reaction to the discourse sparked by the events of December 14, 2012, but rather the reaction of a father after having witnessed a miracle - the miracle of his daughter's beautiful life.Within this recording there is an assertion that, despite the seemingly unbearable weight of our loss there is still lots of beauty all around and much to be thankful for in this life. I'm grateful that my dad reminded me of this fact in the days after Ana was killed because from that moment, my focus gradually shifted from inward to outward, eventually resulting in this recording. And, I'm thankful for the opportunity to share this music and a bit of Ana's beautiful life with you."Love wins,Jimmy GreeneNewtown, CTTrack list:Saludos/Come Thou Almighty King with Pat MethenyLast SummerWhen I Come Home with Javier ColonAna's Way with Kurt EllingYour Great NameWhere Is Love? with Kenny BarronSeventh CandleMaybe with Kenny BarronPrayer with Cyrus Chestnut and Latanya Farrell
