Jazz Jive Jitterbug

On a Bell Tel box is this fab tribute to Jazz.

Below is the front (east side) of the box as you walk up the street.

Let me spin you round, starting on the south side of the box, which is a female sax player. I adore the silhouette style.

Then, it’s around to the west side, and 3 more musicians, trumpet, singer and upright bass.

The north end is plain, with the artists signature. (shown at end of post)

Then it’s back to the east side, where the dancers are in color.

  1. Thanks for sharing that sweet music-themed art. I like the background colours – makes the figures look they’re in a smoky bar or club and it’s midnight. Nice to see some love for drummers in the comments too *coughs modestly* πŸ™‚
    I was drawn to the ref numbers at the top left above the dancer in blue, and added them together to 12… the magic number in (Western) music…
    “The chromatic scale is a musical scale with twelve pitches, each a semitone above or below its adjacent pitches. As a result, in 12-tone equal temperament (the most common temperament in Western music), the chromatic scale covers all 12 of the available pitches.” Wikipedia

  2. What a delightful find! This wall of nostalgia is enchanting and conjures all things in a much simpler time. It’s just a day brightening wonder. Thank you Resa πŸ’•β™₯️

  3. Hahaaaa…. Luv this one, Resa; especially the brass player; he looks really ‘into’ it… But then, so do they all, including the fabulous dancers. I’m reminded of the seamed fishnet stockings I sometimes wear dancing. Hers look fabulous! πŸ™‚

    1. Oh, I like that you wear seamed stockings sometimes when you dance! It must complete not just the look, but the feel as well. It’s a fun piece, for sure. πŸ˜€ xoxoxo

    This is totally fun! I love the way the artist made the art fit the boxes. It makes for an interesting perspective of the large woman dancing with a tiny man. πŸ™‚

    1. LOL! I see what you see, in terms of perspective. Would the piece have worked as well had the artist made the woman the smaller of the 2? πŸ˜€ I think not. How about you? ❀

    1. Definitely…Jazz is art. There is no doubt in my mind. This is a fab little piece on the street. People can simply enjoy the loveliness of it, or think beyond. πŸ˜€

Speak your art mind!
