A Slice of Excellence

Ryan Leslie embodies the type of musicianship and artistic direction that appeals to so much of what I see in myself as an artist. His music is art that is universal and as we all heard on Gibberish is beyond language.

I think what appeals to me the most is that he does not see himself just as a lyricist, singer & songwriter but as a well rounded, international creator of art.  I love how he allows his talent to pour into other aspects of art. In this case, he tries his hand as film in his Black Mozart short documentary.

It’s shamelessly self promoting and a bit egotistical but amazingly beautiful. It speaks volumes about the discipline, vision, and artistry of this great virtuoso.

Hope you enjoy & find inspiration in this as I did.
