Saxophonist brings her improvisation to Omaha
January 24th, 2012
Omaha, NE – A saxophonist, well-known for her success in both recording and performing, is stopping by Omaha for a one-night-only concert.
Listen to jazz saxophonist Tia Fuller, and you’ll immediately notice a plethora of different styles and sounds. And thereâ€™s been good reason for that: Fullerâ€™s experience with jazz has ranged from teaching to touring the world, both solo and with established mainstream artists like Beyonce, as a member of the pop singerâ€™s all-female touring band.
As a solo performing artist on stage, Fuller is renowned for her improvisation on the saxophone. In a 2007 interview with National Public Radio’s Weekend Edition, Fuller explained how she has mastered the art of improvisation.
â€œYou learn material so that you can forget it,” she said. “So, when you get on the bandstand, or you get into the the recording studio, youâ€™re able to naturally tap into that, whatever material that is, but not consciously thinking about it – allowing your subconscious to take over.”
“Thatâ€™s a beautiful process because you know something to the point in which you donâ€™t need to think about it consciously, but itâ€™s with you,” she said. “Thatâ€™s when the spirit takes over.â€
Fullerâ€™s latest CD was released in 2010. Decisive Steps combined the fundamentals of jazz with a splash of Brazilian dance, and just the right amount of funk.
Fuller will be performing at the Holland Performing Center in Omaha on Friday, February 17th at 8 pm.
