"Blue Songs in an Open Key is a collection that I know I'll keep re-reading, exploring, and referring to in the future. Check out this book yourself--these stories, like good jazz, are really cool." -Eileen Murphy, Cultural Weekly
"The 13 short stories in this poignant collection weave jazz and emotion in a blue key. The author captures loss and longing with a musician's dissonance, a painter's navy hues, a poet's despair, but hope as light through a cloud breaks through too. Perfectly representative is the heartbreaking story of a young woman whose father deserts the family but gifts her with his love of jazz. There is a wistfulness at heart to which every sentient being can relate.
"Arya's Acknowledgements sum up the feeling tone of her beautiful book: "Jazz, hard bop in particular, is an experiment, a leaning over the edge of time with sound. Thanks to the artists who ventured to do this with music and who inspired this collection.'"
- Char Jones, Book blogger with more than 5000 followers all over the world; Goodreads and Amazon reviewer with more than 500 book reviews published; jazz lover.
