Human freedom, compassion, musical statements

J
azz is one of the most vital and ever-changing musics in the world. Jazz music has continually evolved since its birth nearly one hundred ago. The music has always had the ability to cut across both national boundaries and musical genres, revealing the unity among seemingly different cultures. There is a powerful relationship between tradition --  the continuity of culture -- and the creative freedom of innovation through the spirit of improvisation. I am proud to play a part in this true world music.

Musician inspired by Matisse's 'Jazz'

Origionally Published Wednesday, December 16, 2009 By CORI URBAN

CHICOPEE - The sick-bed "painting with scissors" paper cut-outs French painter Henri Matisse created before his death and the text that accompanied them when they were published in 1947 inspired Elms College music lecturer and artist-in-residence Christopher G. Bakriges - a pianist, composer and educator - to create a musical reflection on the work.

"Teaching the Eye to Hear: Musical Reflections on Matisse's 'Jazz'" is Bakriges' musical interpretation of the artist's visual images. His son, violinist David C. Bakriges, is featured on the CD.

The series of 20 Matisse plates, collectively called "Jazz," "really stimulated me to look at his composition, form and color and really respond to that in a musical way," Bakriges said. "I could see what he was doing in my mind's eye and really respond to it musically."
