Once a member of the smooth jazz band Soultry Sound, Michael has embarked on his musical journey and has taken it to a level beyond his own imagination. The North Carolina Native has been inspired tremendously by the music of the late great Wayman Tisdale, and as he continues his solo career Michael Fields Jr will definitely become a name that you won’t forget!

Tulsa Jazz Artist Spotlight: Ahmad Austin

Enjoy-Now jazz print

“Enjoy Now” A Painting by Ahmad Austin

A typical night for Ahmad Austin can be stated in one word: relaxation.  In fact, most of his paintings are done at night when his inspiration comes from the sultry sounds of John Coltrane, a popular jazz legend. When Austin ends his workday as an art teacher, he begins a work of exquisite art that evokes excitement and energy.  Austin states, “It’s almost indescribable how I feel when I’m painting. It’s as if time doesn’t exist. After coming home from an intense day working with elementary students, Austin shows us how he goes from teaching art class to painting jazz…
