MANDALA III    BLUE RONDO

1997

45” x 45”

 

HOMAGE TO DAVE BRUBECK


Brubeck was the first jazz pianist to filter through the walls blocking my access to modern types of music during my high school years.  I still play and teach Brubeck’s “Blue Rondo à La Turk” as well as the Mozart “Rondo à la Turk” that inspired the former piece.

 

I began this quilt with some of the same parameters that Brubeck might have used to organize his metrically ground-breaking piece:  it will be Blue and it will be Round.   Why didn’t I choose 9 divisions of the circle?  I still scratch my head on that question.
