The Third Eye, is the story of an African American Fulbright Scholar on assignment to create a jazz program at the classically oriented Academy of Arts/University of Novi Sad, Serbia. The book shows him assessing and creating a meaningful workshop for the classical students, "On-the-fly", who speak a completely different language, learn at a different rate, and follow a completely different economic system.
