This is a very special print. A short while after the hurricane Katrina disaster I went to retrieve some prints from a gallery owner's home. It was depressing and dirty work and by the end of the day I only wanted to return to the hotel to reflect of the sad condition of this beautiful old city and rest. Yet, I knew it would be even sadder to have missed a chance to hear some fine, live jazz and I'd be kicking myself later. Shortly thereafter I was ensconced near the stage at Mason Bourbon and, when the musicians began to play that wonderful old Dixieland Jazz, emotion overwhelmed meā€¦Take that Katrina! You can kick the wind outta' this great city but you sure as hell can't kill it's spirit! I went back home and painted this jazz scene to say, 'the crazy, beautiful soul that is New Orleans lives on!'
