The term "metamorphosis" can mean a striking alteration in appearance and that certainly occurred in the body of work of the late artist Jackson Pollock [1912-1956] when he developed his technique which involved throwing paint on a canvass placed on the floor.

Metamorphosis is also the title of a tune that guitarist Peter Bernstein wrote for his Earth Tones [Criss Cross 1151] CD with Larry Goldings on Hammond B-3 organ and Bill Stewart on drums.

Given the editorial staff at JazzProfiles penchant for viewing art while listening to Jazz, we thought the two would go very well together.

See what you think.
