I love jazz because t adds color to everything. I was first exposed to jazz from my dad. I met Dave Liebman and everything changed for me. He showed me how we could mix jazz and art together, real fusion. He helped me look outside my art studio and to see jazz as part of my art. Jazz can be a blank canvas full of possibilities. Jazz vision is the fusion of music and art a real paradox of same--yet different. Here we play in exchanges, like the hardness of the key of c# major and from the softness of Db major--capturing, reflecting and improvising. Jazz vision for me is seeing my art in musical terms.
