A lady contacted me last night saying that she had begun to run a low-grade fever and was feeling puny and depressed about the Covid-19 virus. She decided to download one of the Serenity playlists and said that she couldn’t believe how soothing and comforting it was! I wish I had recorded the phone call because she mentioned several things like “better than Valium” and how the saxophone just carried her to a whole different place where everything was beautiful and healthy and optimistic. This was really exciting for me to hear because the Jazz Playlist is the only one that I specifically commissioned for Surgical Serenity since Jazz is not style that I play. Dozens have people have told me that they really do love it and that it is a “Go-To” when anxiety hits! To get a download of the playlist, go to www.SurgicalSerenitySolutions.com/buyanapp.
