My son is a guitarist in LA. He plays many styles of music, one of which is jazz. He has a jazz trio, cleverly called The Jazz Three-O which consists of guitar, bass and vocal. Periodically they play with drums, sax and piano. This gave me the idea to do a jazz quintet. I tried to execute it with loose pencil strokes and be adventurous with the shapes as jazz is very much that way. Jazz musicians seem to like to be right on the edge of their boundaries, hence I took the images right to the edge as well. I originally was going to also add an alto sax, but there are just too many buttons on that instrument; simplyfing it was not an easy task for me.
