Now Playing:

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.

The art of progression. That could be about the changes of chords as you move through a tune or how an artist has spanned styles as the music itself has evolved and progressed.

Emotion and creativity are two elements in life that rarely start out in a neat or orderly fashion. They are, as so many will say, all over the place.
