Soul and jazz singer Terry Callier, the 67-year-old songwriter experienced belated success in his career after working with acts including Massive Attack and Beth Orton has died on Sunday after suffering from a long illness. (+) May his soul rest in peace…

“I think that music at the best of times goes outside the composer and performer and reaches places inside the listener. It’s like some transfer of waves from heart to heart. Certain cultures still believe that this is not only the best way to communicate, but the only real way to build anything lasting with another human being.

At the best of times a song transcends my experience and reaches into other people’s lives, and concerns, and makes them live. When it does that, the music means someone else can feel – I can feel it and someone, other then I can feel it.”
