There’s a great Yiddish expression: “To a worm in horseradish, the world is horseradish”.
Musicians for the most part are in horseradish. It’s all about music, all the time, period.
But what if musicians also dipped their toes in ketchup, mustard, cocktail sauce, sweet and sour sauce, barbecue sauce, and whatever else along with horseradish? What sort of weird concoction would could out of that?
The best musicians are not worms in horseradish. They’re in a stranger brew entirely.
