Click Picture above for 3 fantastic hours of JAZZ!!!!

It is an intentional, mental foray into brain, body and sound; spontaneously crafted from organic creativity leading you down the black hole of euphoric ponder. An experience, not just songs played on the radio. What does it all mean? I won’t even know until after the nebulous sonnet has concluded.
