"THE JAZZ UNICYCLE..." A poem description: A trumpet shmoozes with cool sounds.../ The sax flows and coasts/ Melodic vibrations break free/ From the constraints of gravity./ Surprising changes in tempo/ Layers of overlapping textures/ Brilliant colors shout expletives!/ Ostinato contrasts.../ The music weaves through space./ The jazz musician moves and spins/ Complex rhythms…swinging…grooving/ Delicate and careful improvisation.../ The musician works at balance./ Bobbing and weaving/ Woofing and warping/ A joyful jazz tapestry.../ Living dangerously.../ Maneuvering on a unicycle./ Celebrating creativity and life/ On one wheel!/ Poem by Robin Jensen, inspired by the joyful and fun nature of jazz music making life a happier existence.// The Work Photo images are of a Maquette 20 inches high in proportion to the final Three Dimensional Composition. The final artwork will be constructed when accepted. The Maquette is available for viewing on request...
