Doodling to jazz, an A To Z Challenge: N is for Lewis Nash

Searched high and low through the main stash in the living room, the studio, my classroom, and then in iTunes. Found no N's. But how many of those CDs of other letters would have featured the drumming of Lewis Nash? Plenty. So it was time I owned a musical endeavor in which he led the band. The Quintet was amazing.

One day while searching for a kickstarter project to support, we came across Jim Kuemmerle. His project was to speak the story of factory workers trapped in a fire. We were glad to support his successful project.

Doodling to jazz, an A To Z Challenge: I is for Abdullah Ibrahim

Went to the music of South Africa this evening and doodled in violets and purples to the jazz of Abdullah Ibrahim. Had a difficult time capturing to colors, so I muted them to capture the flow.
