Struck by the playing style of jazz drummer Elvin Jones, who was performing at the Village Vanguard at the time, he forcused on that the sound emitted from the percussion beat has an acidic effect of transforming consciousness by resonating with the skin, cells, bones, and mind, and pursued rhythms and grooves that make the body dance naturally and with pleasure.
