Format: Paperback
This book narrates the story of a music student that find an extraordinary musician that practices Zen Buddhism. The story will inspire anyone interested in meditation and buddhism, and at the same time entertain jazz music fans with wonderful insights about the true meaning of inspiration. Greatly recommended!

Format: Kindle Edition
I was recently in San Francisco and had the opportunity to visit the Saint John Coltrane African Orthodox Church, where the organic link between certain forms of jazz and spiritual experience was pressed home to me again. Now, reading Devashish's fine book, I'm again brought into a state of intellectual and aesthetic joy as a reader, and openness to the wonder and mystery of what lies in the silence. The Jazz Master combines two of my passions and does so in a way that awakens my desire to go more deeply within myself. I also love the sharply drawn portraits of iconic figures from a revolutionary moment in American history. Good stuff.

Format: Paperback
There is much to be said for this genre (spiritual fiction) in stirring dormant spirituality and here Devashish puts it so nicely. An inspiring read sure to turn the head as my head was turned so many years ago when I read 'Be Here Now.'

Format: Paperback
This is the perfect book for anyone who fantasizes about exploring mysticism through music. Devashish draws on his own decades of experience as a musician, producer and meditating yogi to weave the thrill of inner discovery into an enthralling story. I'm looking forward to the sequel!

By John Jay on February 16, 2015
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fictional book that fools you into thinking that it is a real memoir written by a spiritual seeker in San Francisco during the time of the Beat Generation in the mid 1950s. Real life characters such as Jack Kerouac, Alan Watts and Allen Ginsberg are part of the story, but the center piece is the mysterious Elijah who is a master of the saxophone and Zen Buddhism as well. The conversations of Elijah and his disciple Dan Hennesey (who is the "author" of the memoir) reveal a lot about the arts of meditation, spirituality and jazz. The description of the cultural milieu of 1950s San Francisco also helps to explain why the hippies flourished there ten years later. If you would like to be inspired to sit down and go deep within yourself, then this is a book that will help you greatly, and it will entertain you too.

Format: Paperback
This novel is a treasure trove of insights about art and spirituality. Dan, a college freshman and budding musician, is initiated into the practice of jazzuzen, playing jazz with a Zen mind. The main characters are unforgettable. Elijah, a WWII veteran, is Dan’s guide into a musically hued Satori, while Diana, a feisty poet, is Dan’s Virgil into the Purgatory of the Beat Generation. This book will be a classic for people in search of awakening and for lovers of jazz and art in general.

One of the most inspiring books I've ever read. The Jazz Master's story of Zen Buddhism has really cemented my desire to increase my study of the dhamma.
