Listen to jazz saxophonist Tia Fuller, and you’ll immediately notice a plethora of different styles and sounds. And there’s been good reason for that: Fuller’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 singer’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.

“You 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, you’re able to naturally tap into that, whatever material that is, but not consciously thinking about it – allowing your subconscious to take over.”

“That’s a beautiful process because you know something to the point in which you don’t need to think about it consciously, but it’s with you,” she said. “That’s when the spirit takes over.”

Fuller’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.
