'Way down on Rampart Street in New Orleans,
Somebody's callin' me,
And I can hear that gang of jelly beans,
Are singing harmony!
I get lonesome by my ownsome,
Here in this one-horse town!
My heart beats
For Rampart Street,
And for my teasin' brown!
Oh, the Mississippi River is so doggone deep and wide,
Yes, the Mississippi River is so doggone deep and wide,
But if I can swim across it, there's a street where I can hide!
Way down yonder on old Rampart Street lives my sweet papa Lou,
There down yonder on old Rampart Street lives my sweet papa Lou,
He's the one sweet papa I can always tell my troubles to.
Louisiana! Louisiana! I'm coming back to you!
Louisiana! Louisiana! Ain't nothin' else to do!
My sweet old baby! I don't mean maybe!
I'm gonna tell you true,
Say, I'm not bluffin', there ain't no nothin'
I love like I love you.
Honey, put your patent leathers on and spread that sad old news,
I said put your patent leathers on and spread that sad old news,
That old used-to-be has got a mean old case of Rampart Street blues!

I call my art "Composing with Color". Everyone hears music differently. The way we perceive art is shaped by our taste and by emotions, situations and personalities. My canvas is the manuscript on which the notes are painted. I have attempted to have music take on physical colors as it travels through air. My ideal vision would be to create a world in colors as Thelonious Monk created a world of sound.
I am a graduate of The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, PA. I have had solo exhibitions in New Orleans, Los Angeles, Miami and Frankfurt, Germany. I have received a grant from the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the Artist Fellowship Inc, New York, NY.
