I caught these jazz musicians – Matt Wall on guitar and Roy Gee on tenor sax – entertaining people in open air cafes on a beautiful sunny day in Brighton. Jazz is about using the blues scale, syncopation (where the beat is on the upbeat) and, of course, improvisation. It was some of these musical qualities I wanted to suggest with my choice of cool background colours separating the musicians physically but warm instruments uniting them (blues & improvisation) and my use of negative space – the equivalent of pauses in music (syncopation).
