Had a moment today with Hiroshi Yoshimura’s 1986 album Green: I was standing on the top observation deck at the Whitney Museum in the rain, looking out at lower NYC. Watching all the little things conspire down below me, along with the pitter-patter of the rain against my coat made for a lovely, comforting sensory experience. Some may find standing in the cold rain is unpleasant, but if you’ve got an appropriate soundtrack, you can turn a dreary day into a cozy one.
If you haven’t listened to any of Yoshimura’s music, I recommend Green as well as his recently-reissued Music For Nine Post Cards. Had plenty of moments with that album as well. The man knows how to set a peaceful mood.
