JAZZ SINGER/ THE ELEVATORS 10X8 1999

Night would always bring performance to Ruta Maya. Tuesday was open mike. Poetry at 6. Music at 9. I sweated this piece out. Fifteen minute sets with a model in motion. I was concerned the singer would come look. Most of the evolution of this piece, the sultry singer looked like a bearded man with a saxophone. I felt like I nailed her in the coda.
