In the Present Moment

In the Present Moment” is mindfulness in song form. In fact, Beth and I have used it to open some shows when we perform Mindfulness Matters in elementary and middle schools.

When the Scott Bierko Band featuring Beth, Regina Singel and Alan Baruch was in full-swing (pre-pandemic) this was and audience favorite and one of our’s, too. I think it was the Santana-like guitar part Alan laid down and the positive vibe that springs from the combination of the lyrics and the uptempo chord progression. It’s a great progression: Am7 / Dm7 / F / E7. To me, it evokes the jazzy part of the Doobie Brothers and even some Steely Dan.

It’s one of the songs that I can see other people covering (playing) and nothing would make me happier!
