Jazz Art


The watercolor of a jazz combo used on the home page was painted by trombonist Tom Smith of Oxford, NC. In addition to being a fine trombone player, Tom is also an accomplised artist.

Jazz art takes many forms. Sketches or cartoon of jazz icons can be very appealing. The following is a set of drawings from the web that I enjoy a lot. Unfortunately, I have lost the original URL so I can not acknowledge the artist. If anyone knows the URL for the original site or the artist's name, please send me an e-mail.
