Studio 365: Day 71

Day 71 i

After Day 70 featured The Blue Danube Waltz, blue continues to be the theme for Day 71.

Blue Monk

I drew this cartoon when I was still a schoolboy in the early sixties after listening to Thelonius Monk playing Blue Monk for the first time. If you have a few minutes listen to this great Jazz classic from a 1963 recording of the Thelonius Monk Quartet and available on Revolver Music’s Thelonius Monk, Volume 2.  It remains one of my favourite pieces of Jazz to this day.

Day 71 ii

Somehow I feel that today’s blue palette is a good match for the jazz. What do you think?
