Dwayne Adell

Adell sees a profound interrelationship among various artistic and scientific disciplines, i.e., mathematics, physics, music, electronics, chemistry, biology and genetics. His vision extends into a unique perception of jazz as a music of liberation, jazz as freedom and finally, sound as love.
