I started listening to jazz music after listening to a great local station while driving home. After doing a bit of online research and listening to the masters, I soon fell in love with the jazz legends like John Coltrane and Miles Davis. I started going to jazz clubs soon after to feel the music and to get inspired to paint my first jazz painting. I wanted to capture the true feeling and apply it to my painting. I decided to call this piece “Blue Train” to not only honor John Coltrane’s 1957 album, but to honor the track under the same title as my first jazz track that introduced me to jazz and changed my life.
