"WILD" I'm not going to lie, I struggled with this one today - not so much knowing what is and isn't wild but making it personal to me as every other entry for this Inktober has been. Not apparent nor thematic per se but I chose to personify this troublesome word with my favorite music: Jazz. Jazz embodies many complicated emotions. It can be light, humorous, and saccharine or on the other extreme sorrowful, pitiful, and gut wrenching. It would be ignorant to say no other genre does this (which they do) however jazz, in my opinion, emphasizes a presence and improvisation that can and often is unexpected, frenetic, and virtuosic. That "wildness" is what I tried to capture here with this Inktober sketch highlighting some of my favorite performers. (R-L clockwise: Benny Goodman, Fats Waller, Billie Holiday, Django Reinhardt, and Louis Armstrong.) #Inktober #Inktober2019 #Jazz #GypsyJazz #VocalJazz #BigBand #Swing #Rag #JazzMusic #JazzArtists #JazzPerformer #Clarinet #Piano #Vocals #Guitar #Trumpet #Ben#Bennyman #Benny #Fat#Fatser #Fats #BillieHoliday #LadyDay #Dja#DjangoReinhardt #Django #LouisArmstrong #LouieArmstrong #Drawing

Hello everyone! Here’s a little sample of some of the new music I’ve been working on- inspired by the roaring twenties (now that we’re almost back into the twenties) and music of that time period 😊 “The Pumpkin Rag.” #jazz #guitar #guitaristsofinstagram #jazzguitar #rag #ragtime #guitarrag #pumpkin #fall #newmusic
