For the third time my collection failed to provide a CD, but I found an amazing sax player by the name Massimo Urbani to do some doodling. I chose 7 prismacolors from my reds. Here he is playing one of my favorites.
V didn't have many options, but more than U. I chose Sara Vaughn, I hope no one will be upset with that. As for the doodle, it is the first mandala in this atozchallenge

Another attempt at catching up, and let me tell you I am seriously pondering skipping over X, but that's later.
Maria Schneider composes for her orchestra and it is all about jazz and such beauty. It makes me happy that her life has led to this music.
Clark Terry has been playing the trumpet for a long time, but I only have one of his CD's. It features Thelonius Monk. Get ready to go in orbit:

Once again a double letter name shows up, Renee Rosnes is a fine pianist and composer. I used her version of A little Help From My Friends, when I created a video of Margaret and her grouting buddy, The Grout Monster.

Last night while doodling, I listened to a much different version of Anita O'Day singing Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered. But isn't that what I love about jazz. The ability of taking a tune in so many directions.

A rare straight line doodle this evening. We heard Julian Lage one night at the Rochester Jazz Festival playing duets with Taylor Eigsti. It was wonderful. Here they are together...

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.

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.

So I was considering a couple other CD's for F, but then I thought that Ella and Louis could surely produce a joyful doodle. Went with my favorite complimentary colors to celebrate their duets. Here is Lets Call The Whole Thing Off.
