My forth original piece for my fourth original year of free programming. #jazzday #IDJ2019
Welcome back one and all.
Every month, I like to give something away. Typically, it will be an item that has been out of circulation for a while, and more often than not, it is an item that was created, never used and archived. Sometimes I just like to create something unique for all of you, simply for the joy of it.
This month’s free download is called International Jazz Day 2019. This year, I am featuring a program much like the one I did for Miles Davis last year, with selections from multiple albums being broken into small segments. This year’s featured artist will be the First Lady of Song, Ella Fitzgerald. For those wondering, this isn’t a photo, it is a digital illustration based upon a photo.
I purposely wanted to give the item a look similar to the old pasted on album covers of the 1950’s.
This will be my fourth annual special program in honor of this celebration, and my second to feature it a special mini-site, which will launch on 30 April, possibly sooner. You can see the page as a work-in-progress at https://www.aospdx.com/international-jazz-day-2019/.
Additionally, you can view or download any of my previous posters for this event by clicking on one of the images in this post. Yes, I purposely have attempted to make each one look radically different from the rest on purpose.
Click on any image to open or download a PDF. It can be printed at your local copy shop for typically between $1.50 to $2.00.
Love to you all, and Happy International Jazz Day!
