Gill Scott Heron & New Midnight Band’s tribute painting

Last September 2013 was the release of The New Midnight Band CD “Evolutionary Minded”  furthering the legacy of Gil Scott Heron. The band performed a  beautiful gig in Paris called  “The music of Gil Scott Heron Re-Visionned”. I was there and I was moved by the vibes of that beautiful show with french guests like Sandra Nkaké & Ji Dru. 3 months later here is what it blowed to my mind and to my brushes :-) (Click on the pic to enlarge it)
