My Guitar, My Muse by Britt Conley. This was a commission piece by a wonderful couple who had seen an earlier piece. from my first Jazz Envisioned show. I listened to several works to get a feel for the kind of music that represented the musician. I then set out to create a melody and rhythms before adding metal rivets and the actual guitar string the musician had performed with. The work was unveiled to the couple at The Arts Club of Washington in 2019.
