a third exception - Slim Cessna's Auto Club

the musician : Slim Cessna's Auto Club
the tune : This is how we do things in the country
the artist : Carole Wilmet

As with all the exceptions so far, I feature this illo only because I really love Carole's work. Go check her site, some incredible pieces!

Her only fault, to her own admission, would be not to know anything about jazz...

jazz and draw takes a week of vacation

Since I will be on vacation this coming week and will therefore not be able to post, I thought I'd make one big post for you. I called up my good friend (and jazz lover) Blaise Dehon whose work you've seen here before and who made an exhibition about jazz not so long ago (you might remember that). He sent me some of the pieces he presented at this exhibition. Hope you like them.
See you in a week,


the musician : Al & Don Ayler
the tune : Truth is marching in

the musician : Johnny Hodges
the tune : "Sunny side of the street" & "I got it bad and that ain't good" & others...
