JAZZ & ART at Lincoln Center

On Saturday night I was fortunate enough to be invited to the incredible Jazz and Art II concert by The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. The show featured works by artists including Bearden, Davis, Sam Gilliam, Homer, Wifredo Lam, Mondrian, Matisse, Picasso and others projected behind the orchestra as they played jazz inspired by the works. What an amazing event to reportage! Honestly it was a bit overwhelming to hear this incredibly original music while watching the backdrop of master works of art. It was an experience both personally and artistically. The only way it could have been better would have been to have all day and all of my art supplies!

Here is a selection of drawings from the performance.
