 Shabd - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Indeed, in Sant Mat the raison d’être for the human form is to meditate on the Sound Current, and in so doing merge with it until one’s own divinity is ultimately realized.
Adherents believe that a Satguru, or Eck Master, who is a human being, has merged with the Shabd in such a manner that he or she is a living manifestation of it at its highest level (the “Word made flesh”).

 Mat Rogers, catching the toffs on the hop: A few home truths - On Line Opinion - 5/10/2004
Mat Rogers ruffled more than a few feathers in the upper echelons of “the game they play in heaven” with his entirely reasonable observations about the standard of club rugby union in Australia.
Admittedly Rogers doesn’t have a hyphenated name, perfect elocution or a regular barber - but what he does have is phenomenal talent and a superb record of achievement in both codes - not to mention the capacity to contribute to future Australian rugby success in a way his trio of critics don’t.
Mat Rogers has caught the toffs on the hop, which can only be a good thing.

 ECM
Joseph Gabriel Maneri (born 1927) was suddenly and belatedly saluted as one of jazz's great originals, a strange twist of fate for a musician whose idiosyncratic microtonal improvising and composing had been resolutely ignored by the jazz establishment for decades.
With typically paradoxical flair, Joe Maneri likes to point out that he was a late arrival even in his own band, assuming leadership of it in the early 90s, some years after the unit was originally founded by his violinist son Mat; drummer Randy Peterson was also on the strength from day one.
Maneri's Quartet, however, is the reedman's priority and has a longer history, although the precise date of its launching is somewhat foggy.

 PK/CDPages/Disambiguation
Disambiguation is apt: at a time when "ecstatic jazz" has become a marketing label for empty bluster, this quartet's concentration on precise quarter-tones produces a new, if sombre, light.
Disambiguation is far too complex and far too worthy a disk to confine to one interpretation.
The verb "disambiguate" is defined in Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary as follows: "to establish a single semantic or grammatical interpretation for." If applied to this disk, then, the title suggests that Pandelis Karayorgis is attempting to define his music in a single interpretation.
