Rhythm & Hues invites You to....

If jazz was a color, what color would it be?
By Jacquelyn Hughes Mooney©97

Blue as in 'mo better?
Cobalt, azure teal,
Sapphired, indigoed midnight sky?

If jazz was a'll fire up red hot!
Cinnamon salsa, mustard tinged lavender lace.
Improvising multiple patterned hues & blues..


Effortless blacks & whites!
Shading elegant brocades in smoky velvet

Billie, Sarah, Duke.
Fly a way Bird!
Groove on Wash- ing- ton!
(No Kenny G here)!

Miles awake,
Miles high!
Miles wide

Colors erupting like a Cannonball!
If jazz was a color, the color would be what the eyes see...
Blue! As in mo betta…

If Jazz Was a Color Exhibition Coming Soon

Our exhibition "If Jazz Was a Color will be opening shotly. It'll run the duration of Carnival season until March 5th featuring New Orleans new, emerging and established artists. We're locate at 1501 Canal Street in the old historic, Texaco building that is part of HRI Properties Bienville Basin Development.

The jazz part of the exhibition is purely a metaphor.  If sound/music is a vibration as well as color, if you switch the genre what color would jazz be?  The artists are to allowed to express themselves in whatever dirction that vibration takes them.
