Poinciana is a famous jazz piece played by Ahmad Jamal.  Its vivid rhythms and improvisation played on his black and white keys were a vivid inspiration for and why I worked on this piece.  Because of it I was actually able to see those magical sounds and transform them into forms, poetic taps, and musical slashes.  I later learned that a poinciana is also an umbrella shaped tree with red leaves from Madagascar.
