Growing up in the south suburbs of Chicago has a way of constructing one's perspective on the world. It could polarize how often we take life for granted, all the while creating memories that are stamped into the fabric of those who lived them. This is exactly what it did for “Ron Trumpet Flow.” Born Jaron Griffin, he utilizes the trumpet, piano, and voice to paint his experiences in to sound. At a young age, Flow was very fond of both visual and auditory arts. The memories that have been stamped into his artistry are those from when he spent days at art galleries gazing at Monet, De Kooning, and Pollock, all the while hearing the sounds Roy Hargrove,Miles Davis and Common Sense.
