In Love With the Mystery

Music by Paul Horn, Miles Black and Edward Henderson

Vocals and spoken word by Ann Mortifee

This exquisite book is accompanied by music from accomplished musicians and improvisers. Just as the writing in IN LOVE WITH THE MYSTERY was spontaneous and inspired, so also was the creation of the accompanying CD. It is not simply an audio version of the book, but instead is a creative musical expression of the ideas and meaning behind the words in the book. Selected for their evocative power, phrases and passages are spoken and sung within a rich musical environment; the musicians created a resonant sphere in which the meanings and images in the writing could find full expression, often in an active interplay beyond, around and above the words.

Companion CD included in the book

On the companion compact disc, recorded live with her husband, Paul, Ann’s voice transports the listener to places where one can meditate on the wisdom within one’s own heart. This inspired musical offering, a marriage of two visionary souls traveling together, is an added gift to be experienced alone or in union with the book.

The listening experience is enhanced through refined professional recording and mastering using state of the art facilities and craftsmanship. Playable as stereo 5.1 for full surround sound, it is also a super audio disk (SACD), providing extraordinarily superior sound quality for those who have the capacity for SACDs on their players. This CD also sounds beautiful on any normal CD player.

    Dear Paul,
    Not sure if you would ever remember the yellow roses in a tiny Albuquerque jazz club 1977 or 78 so long ago.. I was finishing my nursing university studies and frequented that club.actually skipped classes to listen to wonderful artists including yourself..graduated 1978 with now 35 yr career in nursing..and retired..and able to meld once again in to your wonderful sound. It is a true blessing to hear again such lovely music. Thank you so much for these gifts.

    Hi Paul, I recently heard your music at the Robert Bateman show in Victoria at his new gallery. Hearing your music again brought me back to a very special place. I realized it was one of my fondest memories as a child. You had this amazing way of connecting with me as a child and I really wanted to “Thank You” for this gift. You made me feel alive and full of potential. Just the way you looked at me made me feel special and that you really cared. I know it has been thirty years since we last saw each other but I wanted to be able to hear your voice and thank you in person. Just seeing your face and hearing your music brings such joy. Many thanks.
    Kim lives in Toronto. Still plays guitar professionally and teaches. He has two beautiful girls that are 5 and almost 7 years old. He has a website. He would love to hear about you, so I am going to talk to him and tell him about you being married to Ann Mortifee. Hope you can be in touch. As it would mean the world to me. Xo Jennifer so good to know I can order your music and Donavon’s too! Jennifer Juniper sounds good to hear again. I still remember sitting in his lap and him telling me he wrote Jennifer Junilper for me when I was 5 or 6.
