“So What – Sew What”

This is my emotional/synesthetic response to the Miles Davis favorite, “SO WHAT”.

“Eleta J. Caldwell and Rodney M. Gilbert Memorial Gallery,  So What Curated by Jo-El Lopez
Whether inviting to the eye or to the ear, what is the purpose of art if not to evoke? So What, the opening track of Miles Davis’ — and jazz’s most famous — album, Kind of Blue, dares to answer that question.  While deceptively simplistic in structure, So What’s sophistication lies within the measured ease of its three soloists. In the case of So What: A Visual Interpretation, curator Jo-El Lopez makes a similar statement about what happens when a group of ten visual artists are given the same piece of music to examine and reimagine?  In this exhibition, each artist’s work independently represents a cross section of styles, political platforms, and purpose. And with Lopez’s curatorial approach, as well as Newark’s world-renowned WBGO Jazz 88 Gallery at the helm, the show presents itself as the perfect unification of visual art and interpretation of sound.”

One thought on ““So What – Sew What””

  1. I still listen to Kind of Blue to relax, take a nap, or just let my mind go with the music. I know it so well I can whistle along with every note ( as I can with almost every Miles recording.)
