Jazz and draw takes another week of vacation

I am taking another week of vacation this coming week and again will not be able to post. As I did last time, I post now a few images all done by the same person. He is French originally but lives in Belgium for some time now, he will be exhibiting his work together with Yves Budin and Blaise Dehon very soon and he's got some very funny pictures. His name is Jampur Fraize and he's got an unusual outlook on jazz.
Enjoy, and see you in a week,


the musician : Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All-Stars
the tune : a mix
the artist : Jampur Fraise

Cartola - Alvorada

the musician : Cartola
the tune : Alvorada
the artist : Nik Neves

This is not exactly jazz but according to Nik, he is a brazilian samba composer who is fundamental to brazilian music. He is also one of the creators of the samba school "Mangueira" and it isn't too far from jazz, is it?

This image shows the musician without his sunglasses, what you would rarely see.
