Louis Jordan / Oil on canvas / 24″x 20″

One of the original paintings for Trevor’s show ” That’s Jazz” Voices from the past, featured at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival. A multi colourful oil on canvas using jazzy strokes of paint intermingling to create the form of Louis Jordan. Jordan was a legendary early jazz player and many great names in the world of jazz at one time served in his bands. ” I wanted more improvised colour in this work to reflect Jordan’s style of fluid playing, as with the music , certain zones are established in the painting and then freely improvised in. “
