For saxophonist Tia Fuller, becoming a musician, and concentrating on jazz, seems almost preordained. After all, she came from a musical family who loved and performed jazz. She started playing piano at the age of 3. Music has always been in her life.
While she plays in front of massive audiences as a member of Beyonc's touring band, Fuller remains grounded in the jazz world, as evidenced by her new recording Decisive Steps, her second for the Mack Avenue label. It's a strong album, played with zest and fire by Fuller's all-female band with special guests like Christian McBride and trumpeter Jones.
Veteran AAJ Contributor R.J. DeLuke spoke with Fuller recently, about the hard-swinging Decisive Steps, living in the high-visibility pop world, and going from growing up in Aurora, Colorado to playing at the White House.
