Album Notes
The title of "Celestial Illusions, Silver Reflections" (1983) refers to the passing of youthful innocence and naiveté from our lives. These qualities are replaced gradually, and not without some pain, by successive stages of awareness.
"Begin From Here" (1981) is a serious, yet joyful work celebrating rejuvenation -- our ability to start over. This process is laden with mystery and doubts and requires much hard work, but without it the accumulation of mistakes and wrongs would make life unbearable.
Consequently, both of these works have a similar "theme", although musically the works are quite different. In concert presentation, the composer used his own artwork projected synchronously with the music to enhance the experience. The cover of this album, titled "Mysteries" ©1980, is one of these images.

Kenneth A. Jacobs (D.M.A. University of Texas at Austin) is a composer and artist. He has been awarded The American Prize, International New Music Composers Prize, and awards from City College of New York, Brown University, Texas Music Educators Association, and the Tennessee Music Teachers Association.
