Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself with Jazz!
With God's blessing: To inspire, educate, and bring people together!


Jazz Has the Potential to Inspire!

In today's Jazz climate, it's not enough to present Jazz. People are looking for inspiration. What is the use if a Jazz musician is displaying immense technical prowess if he/she is not inspiring. 

Jazz needs to not only be an artform that people can hear; but more importantly, Jazz needs to be fun; Jazz needs to be a celebration; Jazz needs to be entertaining; Jazz needs to be interactive; Jazz needs to inspire!

Another very important component of Jazz that has greater potential to inspire even beyond the audio and often not taken into consideration by musicians and/or presenters is the visuality of Jazz. How can Jazz visually inspire an individual? If I'm a musician, how can I present this artform in a way that is visually inspiring? If you're a presenter, how can I create an environment that would visually inspire an individual?

Why does Jazz need to inspire?? 

Because Jazz is not just for fans of this artform. Jazz can potentially attract all kinds of people. Because when you have people that are inspired by Jazz, that individual is more likely to embrace Jazz's musical language as well as its history. Because inspiration translates to enthusiasm for the artform. And that is how you build a network of Jazz fans inspiring one person at a time. br
