I create visual jazz art on my iPad. Like jazz itself, my paintings are improvised during live performances.
I have had the remarkable fortune to make live iPad paintings over the last couple of years of all these jazz musicians:
Sonny Rollins, Espranza Spaulding, Herbie Hancock, Gerri Allen, Maurice Chestnut, Kitty Margolis, Adam Theis, Mary Jo Casasanta, Shao Way Wu, Jimmy Durchslag, Michael La Bolle, Hiromi, Simon Phillips, Jenny Scheinman, Allison Miller, Tia Fuller, Michael Forman, Tim Berne, Ambrose Akinmusire, Harish Raghavan, Justin Brown, Michael Blake, Jonas Westergaard, Soeren Kjaergaard, Vijay Ayer, Sarah Scher, Michael Curran, Marcus Shelby, Steve Coleman, Richie Cole, Devin Phillips, Michal Angela Wilson, Tom Harrell, Les Scher, Erik Lawrence, Rene Hart, Lorca Hart, Rez Abbasi, Roy Haynes
I am immensely grateful to the Redwood Jazz Alliance, Center Arts at Humboldt State University, the Monterey Jazz Festival, Healdsburg Jazz Festival, Yoshi’s SF, Jimmy Mack’s, Persimmons Garden Gallery, Arcata Playhouse and other venues, for providing me with the opportunity to paint at their concerts and to the the great jazz musicians - love you all!
