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.

You literally hug a cello to play it.

Sometimes, and it will happen, I feel like I need a little cry. A shaking off of some of the weight of life that can pile up on you. Other times I can use a good teasing and easing laugh. A spirit raising and darkness brightening giggle.

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.
