Art Blakey illustration for Jazz and Draw

Art Blakey illustration for Jazz and Draw blog

I’ve contributed to the Jazz and Draw blog by Philippe Debongnie with my version of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers doing Sakeena’s Vision.

Inspired by the Covered blog, Jazz and Draw gets illustrators and artists from all sorts of backgrounds to draw their favourite jazzers.  I picked Art Blakey purely for the bonkers drum breakdown in the middle of the track.  It’s a multi submission site so I might have another go at some others: I’m quite keen on New Orleans jazz like George Lewis, Miles Davis’s less parpy stuff and Django Reinhardt.
