Here are 2 souvenir pictures from a beautiful meeting with my long time fav singer Mr Al Jarreau. I’ve made 3 paintings featuring Al .
I felt so lucky to meet him for a painting signing thanks to his manager Joe Gordon.
Great memories after a beautiful concert of Al with the NDR Big Band at Olympia hall (Paris).
Last July I had the absolute honor to meet the founder members of Earth Wind & Fire : Verdine White, Ralph Johnson and Philip Bailey backstage their Olympia hall show . What a memory ! All the band and staff gave me a warm welcome . They signed the tribute painting I made a few month ago when the band founder Mr Maurice White passed away…Here is a pic of that meeting and the every kind message Verdine white left on his facebook page the day after… It was incredible to meet those guys I like since so much time !
Here’s a tribute painting to Esperanza Spalding latest album where she features a character names Emily …A great CD where I found some taste of my friend the late great Jef Lee Johnson who probably inspired Esperanza for this beautiful CD. (click on the pic to enlarge it)
