The Artistry Of...

The Artistry Of highlights, reflects, and celebrates. It mixes and shares language from different artistic disciplines; a musician is a poet; a singer’s voice is described as colorful, and an artist stuns and blinds your senses with the brilliance of their creative energy and expression.

Listen for The Artistry Of - Wednesday evenings in the third hour of Dinner Jazz on JAZZ.FM91.

When she sings I want to hear every word. I don't want to miss a thing; not that her delivery would allow for that. There are those who speak with a smile in their voice, some will cry while telling you something and you are so taken by the power of the emotion you hang on every single expression. It's that, 'like you're the only one in the room', kind of stuff a lover gets romantically lost in made, in a moment, to feel as if they are the most important person in the world.

The light from a colored spotlight seems to change as it travels through space. Defined and solid it hits the stage like a wash. I think the colors of sound also change as they find their way to your ears. That change is part of impression and interpretation. The musician tells you something in sound and when it gets to you the colors may have changed but the essence is just as there.

His sound gets described often as being spare and delicate. That is not about easy to lose in the fray or easily lost in the shuffle. That comes from a career of respect for the line. It’s an almost orchestral sensibility.

The Artistry of ... Dave Restivo

I know that if I’m able to let my mind separate an instrument from the beauty of the sound produced, I’m experiencing a special artistry; that if the mechanics are left far behind the musical expression the experience is what the artist is saying and not just what they’re doing.

Are your influences fairly eclectic? Does what inspires your creativity come from just about everything around you? Maybe you are a purest form of ‘ears and eyes wide open’ and you cannot help but soak up the sounds, and vibrations of almost anything and everything.
