Music Documentary Film Review: "Hearing Is Believing" - Rachel Flowers

Although released as a full-length documentary film in 2017, I had not had the opportunity to see this movie until this week. Let me begin by saying that it is a very important film for everyone to enjoy and learn from, especially musicians.

The focus is on Rachel Flowers. She is what a real musician looks like - in every way, shape and form.

Her essence is one of purity. That's what this film means to me: music is purity. The purity of her soul made me cry tears of joy at the end of the film.

She hears a sound in everything and in everyone. The title says it all. More than the familiar motto "seeing is believing," the truth is that "hearing is believing." This is in perfect alignment with my axiom that music is a gift given to all human beings to teach us to become better listeners. Her ears are as wide open as anyone I can ever imagine!

I could go on and on about everything that made me feel so connected to Rachel as a fellow human being, a soul-sister in the art and science of music making. But my intention in posting this on my blog is to spread the word about this jewel in the light of the eye of creation - Rachel Flowers.

You need to hear her play her heart out with world-class chops on a wide variety of instruments (especially piano, flute and guitar), and listen to her compositions. As a fellow composer, I am most impressed by her powerful compositions. You're going to be hearing a lot about her!

But perhaps most refreshing is the undeniable fact that Rachel experiences no boundaries between every so-called stylistic genre. She plays everything from Rachmaninoff's Third Piano Concerto to Bach to Keith Emerson to Jazz and Fusion, from Rush to Frank Zappa, to the American Song Book, ad infinitum.

How rare to find a story about a true human being, who has not been tainted by the world or the quest for fame and fortune, but to simply listen and play music; exploring everything musical with reckless abandon - moving forward at Godspeed.

Here are a bunch of links to the film, and to Rachel Flowers' own music Internet sites:
