Jazz in Greenwich Village

jazz-trio-11

On the night before the night before Christmas, Julia Sverchuk and I were invited by Seth Myers to come to a new 8th St. lounge, Analogue, and see him perform with the Seth Myers Trio - consisting of himself, drummist Will Terrel, and guitarist Joe Cohn. Seth was especially looking forward to playing with Joe, his teacher and mentor. Julia and I decided to go, and it was wonderful! We listened to fantastic music, spent time among friends, and drew together in a nice Greenwich Village club that wasn't dirty or loud, it was just perfect. Can't get much better than that, folks. I absolutely love to draw musicians while they play - especially jazz musicians when they improvise - as their body language is so eloquent. Love the body language going on by Joe Cohn, below:
jazz-trio-4


Even if you didn't hear the music, you can tell who is improvising and leading the trio by watching who has the most expressive body language. Fortunately Julia and I could hear the music, as they were wonderful. Seth gave us each two of his CDs, I've been listening to them since. See more drawings of the evening on my blog HERE.

Really nice!
It feels each year I'm starting to like Jazz much more - I think I'll try going to sketch one too :)

Your style is so unique! I am always drawn to this sensational use of different colors for the leading strokes of the sketch. Thanks for showing.

Love these! I can see how much you enjoyed making them. Sometimes there is such determination to get it right ( whatever that is) that the feeling of the thing gets sidelined- not here. Terrific.

Drawing is like jazz. You have to improvise.
