The Jazz Masters Series
A series of portraits in stained glass of some of the greatest American musicians of the 20th century.
Dimensions 36″ x 42″ framed in Mahogany with inlaid strips of exotic African hardwoods.
I started this a few years ago, probably because these singers, players and composers were people whose music I listened to as a child when my father played his vinyl LP records. I have it in mind to do several more portraits in this series, of Benny Goodman, Django Reinhardt, Dizzy Gillespie and others.
