WHAT IS AVANT GUARDIANS?

“The avant-garde (from French, “advance guard” or “vanguard”, literally “fore-guard”) are people or works that are experimental, radical, or unorthodox, with respect to art, society, and culture.”

“The avant-garde pushes the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm or the status quo, primarily in the cultural realm.”

“Many artists have aligned themselves with the avant-garde movement and still continue to do so…”

IN 2012 I RELEASED A JAZZ/FUNK/HIP-HOP INSPIRED ALBUM TITLED, THROUGH THE MIND’S EYE. IT FEATURED A COLLECTION OF COLORFUL PANORAMIC LANDSCAPES FILTERED THROUGH THE MODERN SOUNDS I EXPERIENCED GROWING UP. IT IS ALSO AN APPROACH TO JAZZ THAT SEEKS TO HONOR THE RICH TRADITION OF FUSION AND MORE RECENT ACID-JAZZ MUSIC. OUT OF THROUGH THE MIND’S EYE WAS BIRTHED THE BEGINNINGS OF A CONCEPT THAT GREW INTO WHAT BECAME AVANT GUARDIANS.

I’VE ALWAYS HEARD MUSIC IN COLORS. SOME OF MY FAVORITE PIECES OF MUSIC ARE NOT ONLY COLORFUL, BUT I EXPERIENCE THEM IN LUSH LANDSCAPES AND BEAUTIFUL SCENERY. LISTEN TO “BUTTERFLY” BY HERBIE HANCOCK, OR “WRAPPED AROUND YOUR FINGER” BY THE POLICE, OR “NO ORDINARY LOVE” BY SADE AND YOU’LL HEAR WHAT I MEAN. THESE ARE SONGS THAT CREATE SUCH BEAUTIFUL LISTENING EXPERIENCES THAT IF THEY WERE PLACES I COULD ACTUALLY TRAVEL TO, I WOULD LIVE THERE FOREVER. I WOULD LOVE TO SHARE THIS EXPERIENCE WITH OTHERS THROUGH MY OWN MUSIC.
