    Jazz in Clinton Square

    I am a big fan of country music so I've always liked steel guitar. I was attracted to the idea of a steel guitar because it's a very distinct visual cue. It's not conceptual. If I say, “lap steel guitar,” people are going to form a visual relationship with the word. So with that focus I was able to form a composition.

    The piece actually took me a couple of attempts. My first composition was very static. To me, jazz should be flowing, easy and graceful. My first figure looked stiff and uncomfortable. With the second attempt I zoomed in to capture the feeling of jazz, the beauty of the steel guitar and still hint at Clinton Square.
