About Light Music: To Clear and Align the Chakras:
“I met you in St. Louis and bought 10 of your fantastic CD’s! I cannot tell you how much they have meant to me in my personal time and my in my healing work. The Light Music cd has been an inspiration to a new session I am offering. I do reflexology on the hands and feet to it….moving around the body, I work on the areas of the hands and feet where each chakra is located. Sometimes I need to replay a segment, but generally the session lasts about 35-40 minutes and then I can do any other healing touch necessary for my session. I find it focuses me , and I feel I do a better, more thorough session of reflexology. After one session. I lay down on my table to rest to your music. I started it over and “woke up” as the 8th cut began. It worked for me too.
I also really love the 11:11 CD. My clients and I never get tired of it.
Thank you so much for your incredible healing music.”
“What a beautiful evening last night at The White Horse emersed in the high vibration music of Richard Shulman and his wonderful ensemble! The new CD is wonderful!”
-Carole Schaefer, Asheville NC
“Really, really impressive, Richard. Awesome playing, all the way. All 3 of you really have a tremendous sense of dynamic and space that’s a real treat for the listener. I also really was impressed by Sonny’s solo on the video. Please definitely do more what I’d call Chamber Jazz ’cause I enjoy the Classical sensibilities you have, while still keeping that good pace and pulse. I’d love to see your jazz releases come out on some of the European labels which I find do a much better job at promoting jazz and Chamber style jazz than over here.
I also was really impressed at your composing on Camelot which I had the pleasure to see how well crafted your compositions are. Great work on all. Thank you once again for turning me on to this.
Cheers and success for your jazz album.”
-Kima Moore – Composer
“BRAVO, Richard! I’m pretty much a purest at heart when it comes to Jazz expression, and for me, the piano trio is the basic unit. But what continually intrigues me with your contribution, is the inter-blending of the music of inner peace with the standard jazz repertoire. Your compositions and melodic innovative ideas are an absolute treat. And the sidemen you choose to complement this gift are joyously, I feel, two of the finest, if not the best artisans of their craft in this area. … and then, from a later email:
That instrumental arrangement and the musicians involved are as pure, crystal clear an example of melodically-driven, creatively-innovative jazz expression as you’ll find anywhere in the greater area. Everyone is an original painter in their own right. And when you put them together working on the same space the frescoes that spill forth are really quite astounding!”
-Rick Dowdeswell (drummer and jazz afficianado)

Thank you letter from the American Holistic Nurses’ Association:
American Holistic Nurses’ Association – July 5 1998
Thank you so much for making the journey to Florida for our Holistic Nursing Annual Conference. How can we ever thank you enough for committing so early to us and for taking the time to drive to Florida. You brought a peaceful and heartfelt spiritual contribution to our gathering. Your music is of the heavenly spheres and we are blessed to have been in your presence to hear you “live.” Your concert was outstanding and the body of work sent to you from above for our organization was a once in a lifetime musical shower of love. We are honored to have experienced the beauty and grace of that hour.
You have personally touched many holistic nurses’ spirits and many have told us that they will incorporate your musical miracles into their daily lives. We enjoyed so being with you after these many months of planning and can only say that you added more to our conference than can ever be measured or expressed in words. (In particular, the blending of your music with Rev. Tanya Beck’s meditation was just so beautiful and inspiring).
It was also fun to get to know you and share moments with you on a personal basis. We wish you well on your move to North Carolina. Bless you, Richard, as you continue on your own journey and musical pathway. You are a special soul with a God-given gift.
Wishing you Peace, Love, and Health,
Patricia Salmon, PhD., ARNP

An email from Barbara Robinson, director of the Three Circles Conference Center in the Asheville, NC area:
Three Circles Conference Center has done an interesting thing. We have the capability of carrying 64 discs in the changer. We have eliminated gradually all but 3. The three you gave us when you were here with Barry and Janae. All of us here just like them better. We feel better. We work better.
We are getting together a bookstore here on site and would like to carry your work for sale to all the people who come here. By the way, all the people who come here also comment on your music and wonder what it is and where they can get it. They also feel better and work better.
I see you have some upcoming events in the area locally. I will attend and perhaps we can have a minute. I also put in a requisition to buy all your available music. So when that clears you will see me on your doorstep either way.
