B.J. Jansen: Ronin, The Masterless Samurai (Artists Recording Collective)

Download a free MP3 from Ronin, The Masterless Samurai

The plight of the Ronin (a samurai knight) draws many similarities to what I have observed with those of us who adopt the way, or follow a life of the study of the art and craft of instrumental improvised music. Live performance and revenue streams have become increasingly scarce as society and technology have changed. However, like the Ronin, we artists persist as warriors and keepers of the flame, devoting our lives to the propagation of the Music. We have become drifters, outsiders, masterless and seeking the truth of who we are as artists and people.
