Director Statement

How do you define success as an artist? We are sort of conditioned to see success in the conventional terms of fortune and fame. Could I still have that fire burning for my craft even if I wasn't fighting for a place at the top? "Jazz" is a reflection on art as something different. Something more. It is a meditation. It is joy. It is religion.
