My Jazz Story

Published on: 2018-09-03

I love jazz because... as a free jazz solo performer interested in freely improvised music with a focus on generating extended sound statements within the options afforded through solo performance, I am able to incorporate totally improvised sound expressions with emphasis on deconstruction of structure and pattern while generating a narrative of the moment built upon the textural aspects of the sounds, the physical dimensioning of each note, the geometric quality of the sounds, while being concerned with the timbre of every note and passage, and with the rhythmic structure of the relationship of each note to its neighbors within the musical neighborhood.
