Jim Doxas - The Art of the Drum

1,384 views 2 months ago
A film by Randy Cole - Noted Jazz drummer Jim Doxas speaks eloquently about color and texture, and how they define his musical ideas. Set in Montreal landmark club Upstairs Jazz Bar & Grill and in the studio of artist Fung Sou, this short film puts you in the drummer's seat, and before the painter's canvas, conceptually blending the two art forms in an unexpected duet of ideas and spirit.

Fung Sou's brush strokes are curiously musical, and Doxas' myriad choices reveal themselves as we frame the drums in the metaphor of a painter's canvas; with endless colors and textures spread expressively on a blank surface.

Doxas is joined by brother Chet Doxas on tenor saxophone, and Adrian Vedady on bass.
