Jazz Art Paintings by Ann deLorge

This iconic image is entitled "Jazz In Red". I have the full size print in my home teaching studio and it never ceases to elicit oohs and aahs from students and friends.

When I was designing the look of my jazz education website I happened upon the work of New Orleans painter Ann deLorge. As soon as I saw her work I knew I had stumbled upon some extraordinary images and contacted her with the idea of using her artwork as an integral part of my site. Turned out she was very enthusiastic about the idea and we've been "in biz" ever since.

Here's a more traditional New Orleans image:

She seems to have a "thing" for bass players, and you KNOW I like that:

Or how about this one, which somehow reminds me of Andrew Hill:

If you're a jazz enthusiast, you owe yourself a visit to Ann's site. The prints are very reasonably priced and there are a lot of other jazz and N.O. related images there. Have some fun!
