Terrence Blanchard - Funeral Dirge

the musician : Terrence Blanchard
the tune : Funeral Dirge
the artist : Shadra Strickland

ok, the illos do not have much to do with jazz, but as you listen to the music and once you know that those images are part of a book called "a place where hurricanes happen" it starts to make sense. And then Shadra confesses to be a great jazz lover, in her own words: "When I worked on that book, I listened to Terrence Blanchard's album, A Tale of God's Will." Still out of place?
