Music and the New Experience.

A couple of hours ago i was at Capitol Theater in Salt Lake City to attend Jeff Hamilton and trio – the first Jazz concert of the SLCJAZZ season by GAM Foundation. Jeff Hamilton played a mix of groovy, slow and a closing Blues composition. The music and ambiance was just great.

I was more interested in my own ability to not to be able to completely relax and absorb the music. I wonder if music or any other form of art has any deep meaning. Perception and understanding is built upon old experiences. How can i experience something subtle like music when i have to use my past experience?
