So what type of music reduces stress the best? A bit surprising is that Native American, Celtic, Indian stringed-instruments, drums, and flutes are very effective at relaxing the mind even when played moderately loud. Sounds of rain, thunder, and nature sounds may also be relaxing particularly when mixed with other music, such as light jazz, classical (the "largo" movement), and easy listening music. Since with music we are rarely told the beats per minute, how do you choose the relaxation music that is best for you? The answer partly rests with you: You must first like the music being played, and then it must relax you. You could start by simply exploring the music on this web page. Some may relax you, some may not. Forcing yourself to listen to relaxation music that irritates you can create tension, not reduce it. If that happens, try looking for alternatives on the internet or consult with Counseling Service staff for other musical suggestions. It is important to remember that quieting your mind does not mean you will automatically feel sleepy. It means your brain and body are relaxed, and with your new calm self, you can then function at your best in many activities.
Now should Booker have recorded at 23 ?? I for one am very glad he did . I am EXTREMELY GLAD HE DID and that we have these records but for someone like Miles maybe Booker wasn`t ready to record . We have to remember that Miles was a very high level artists and could not listen to a lot of things based on his high level of artistry . But me as a 19 year old I needed to hear Booker at 20 years old in order to help MY development . Are these classic records ? I don`t know. Definitely not all of them . What Miles is saying is that he wants to hear classic records. He is not a novice . He is Miles Davis !!!!!! Think of all the shit he heard in 1939 !!!!!!!!!! Killing shit. We have to remember this . He`s heard it all and then some !!
