Hearing Coltrane, Dizzy and Miles blow a solo in 1954 probably felt – at least to a layman – much like venturing out into metropolis currently feels to me. A brute force; all of it demanding my full attention and respect.

Which explains why music lovers so hungrily consumed the relaxed, unhurried piano playing of Ahmad Jamal in 1958; and why this TV spot so easily helps you catch your breath:

Every shot was created on the new iPhone 7.

Jamal’s 1958 release At the Pershing coined the term “cool jazz” because it exploited an element of jazz that the prior legends wouldn’t……space. Jamal let the upright bass and ride cymbals go for measures at a time. He didn’t fill every chorus with exhausting virtuosity. He let the sustain of his piano and the structure of the song do the work. Audiences finally had jazz they could make love to; jazz they could have conversations over (I have mixed feelings about that one) and jazz that more easily fit into their lives.

Jamal earned enough income with At the Pershing to take a three year hiatus and buy a restaurant. It was at this restaurant the Alhambra in downtown Chicago, that he recorded “Snowfall”, used in the Apple spot. Apple is projected to earn enough income with the iPhone 7 to purchase the most expense entree on Alhambra Palace’s menu (filet mignon) one-and-a-half billion times*.

Here are fantastically chill jazz piano ballads available for licensing on MusicRevolution.com

*Jamal’s restaurant actually closed in 1961, but the Alhambra Palace in downtown Chicago looks great and I needed a fun punchline.

Grab a Kleenex for this one. In this scene from Truly, Madly, Deeply (1990), Juliet Stevenson plays an amateur pianist named Nina whose boyfriend recently died. As Nina is grieving at her piano, she’s imagining her late boyfriend (a professional cellist) playing his duet part in Bach’s Sonata No.3 for Cello & Piano.

Suddenly, Nina realizes the cello part she’s hearing is actually real. That’s because her boyfriend (played by Alan Rickman) has returned from the afterlife to be with her.

This scene, and the unpredictable plot that follows, was so powerful it compelled the BBC to scrap their plans to debut the film on British TV and instead send it straight to movie theaters.

For director Anthony Minghella, it was the smash hit that brought every major US movie studio to his doorstep, launching a string of Oscar winners including The English Patient (1996), The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), and Cold Mountain (2003).

When I played this scene for my fiancé, she said, “They don’t make movies like this anymore.”

The verbal interplay between Nina and Jamie (Rickman’s character) occurs inside such supernatural – yet familiar – circumstances; the story takes you into the emotional cracks and crevices that exist between husband and wife in a way that can only fiction can. Non-fiction (i.e. celebrity autobiographies, local TV news & tabloids, historical essays) dares not go to such places.

The ending is what gets me (*spoiler alert). As it turns out, you can’t be married to someone who is technically a ghost. Life doesn’t work that way. At the end of the story, in a nine-word exchange between Rickman and one of his fellow ghosts, we realize his whole purpose for returning from the dead was to give his beloved girlfriend a way to take him off the pedestal; and move on with her life.

Roger Ebert called Truly, Madly, Deeply “‘Ghost‘ for grown-ups”. Great movie. Check it out.

The world has become exponentially noisy and splintered since Beethoven was alive and my college music curriculum was written (surely the same year). Nonetheless, my music professors claimed there are five things that make a music composition what it is: harmony, melody, timbre, rhythm and form. By mastering those dimensions, a music creator may clear a place in advance on their mantle for shiny trophies. I guess that’s helpful advice when writing music for a concert hall, but I’ve come to believe there’s a sixth aspect that music creators must consider…and that is “context”. Under what circumstances will your listener experience this piece of music?

I currently write code for a living. And I love it. But doing it well means insulating myself from the outside world. Thankfully, Apple Music’s “Chill” station provides me with a bubble made of spacious, sugary pieces like:

“Winterbreak” by MUNA

“Heights” by Shallou

These artists succeeded at creating a peaceful, profound, provacative backdrpop for busy brains like mine to make cool stuff.

But in a busy world, there are many contexts in which these tracks wouldn’t work at all..if my fiance and I are driving to a fun party; if my team was celebrating a big win at the office. For times like that, the musical backdrop has to be:

“Three Time Loser” by Rod Stewart (1975)

So when creating a piece of music, always try to imagine the “context” in which it will be experienced. Your listeners and – more importantly – the people paying you, will appreciate it.
