Hello! I’m your vocalist for the evening, and I am in the Koolest band, ever!
As you can see, the Kool Kats has an upright bass, singer, keyboardist, trumpeter, drummer and accordionist.
Let’s have a hand for the band!
That’s our manager. Wish he’d quit smoking, but he thinks it’s kool, and he’s a kool kat, too!

Wow! The Kool Kats are spectacular! I’m in love with the drummer. It happens right? Love all those amazing characters and dark but stand out colors. Great artist. Fabulous find dear Resa.
Yeah, I was in love w/a drummer once.
They are quite seductive.
Love music, so this mural stands out.
Listening to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaaT_HRb4GUx Lots of drum action!!!
It’s a beautiful mural and I love that it’s the Kool Kats. Love Santana. Ahhh, Woodstock, what a blast that love in must have been. Love little flower child. xoxoxo
Oh aye, that’s Michael Shrieve! He was like 17 at the time or something. Crazy! Thought I’d butt in here and mansplain.
Great color and it made me smile.
Yeah, it makes me smile, too!
That is a really Cool Cool Kat mural. The characterizations of characters is wonderful.
I agree about the characterizations. At first I didn’t fancy the mural much, nw I quite adore it!
Funny how that happens.
Oh, Resa, what a band!!!!!!!!
Love ’em all! What great characters and what a find!!!!!
I agree. Who would ever think that someone would dream this image up?
Ah… the beauty of creativity!
I hope you’ve got your crayons / chalks and pastels out!!!! 😉
Guilty as charged!
New Art Gown is also started.
AND…unfortunately, I’ve opened a Pandora’s Box of HOUSEWORK…. UCH.
I’m giving it a couple hours a day, on top of regular cooking, bed, dishes, etc.
Not in the evenings, though! That time is for art!
So much to draw.
Ahhhhh…… that’s GREAT!!!!
I know exactly what you mean. If we only had multiple hands to do more things!!!!!!! And Hera doesn’t help at all and to think of all the times I showed her how to vacuum, mop, dust the house. Honestly…. 🙄 Queens huh?!!!!
OOO yeah. I’ve got an apartment full of them. They’re called Art Gowns, and Hera would fit right in!!!
…and how proud she would be in them!!!!!!!!!! [I shouldn’t have said that out loud, now I have her on my tail for an Art Gown!!!!]
Fascinating as always 👍🙏❤
Agree! It was fun to find this! 😀
What FUN!!!! Resa, you find the most incredible murals around! I just LOVED this and could honestly hear the toe tapping jazz!! NICE!!
I agree! This one is a lot of fun!
That’s the finest kat music I’ve ever heard! 😀
Yes! I hear it, too! 🎼 🎺🎤🎶🥁🎹 🎼 🎺🎤🎶🥁🎹 🎼 🎺🎤🎶🥁🎹
What a fantabulous find. Love this band. The colours pop and it’s got a great flow. Who could possibly resist?
Not me! ⚡️💥
The first time i saw, there was a huge construction crew blocking most of it.
I went back 2 months later, and shot it.
Lucky for us you went back! 🧚🏻🌟
The colors are wonderful. Great work of art.
Agree! It’s pretty great.
What a cool band with blue skin and sharp suits! Just fab. As a drummer, gotta say the drummer dude rocks here! But also loving the trumpet dude and sexy vocalist! Ah heck, they’re all too cool.
Thanks for the fun and rocking good share, Resa :)X
I know! These guys are awesome.
I thought I didn’t like it, at first. Interesting how thoughts and opinions change when one takes a second, and better look!
Yeah! Love a bit of jazz stuffs. I have a thing for jazz drummers. Very cool. Too cool for school.
So, you’re still in school?
Jazz Drumming school?
I are still at school, yes.
Enrol in the grammar class!
Yeah… blue kool!
Waaay cool! Love the bright colors, too. And I can hear their music all the way here in NJ. 😀
Merril, you have the hearing of Super Woman! I’m not surprised, as I’ve already heard your words of prose. 😀
Oh, Resa, what an amazing mural that capture the brilliance and style of jazz. This is the third time around for me. This mutual brings back memories of the brilliant Billie Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie and the great jazz bands: The Count Basie Orchestra and Duke Ellington’s Jazz Orchestra, to name a couple. I can hear the music through your photos.
I hear the music, too!
It really is an intriguing mural. It’s so fascinating what comes out of the creative mind.
I love it!
What will I find next?
Who knows where serendipity will lead. You have a marvelous way of capturing the soul of an artist. Thank you, Resa!
Yeah, they are pretty Kool! I really like jazz, but there are no full time jazz stations here in the Phoenix area, which is a shame. Thanks for finding another Kool mural.
My pleasure, Janet!
I like Jazz, too!
I know what you mean about a full time station, whether it’s jazz, rock, classic or country.
It’s nice to be able to turn it on when you’re in the mood, as opposed to tuning into the “Jazz Hour”. One might not be in the mood at that time.
There was at least one full time jazz station in the Chicago area and I suppose I could stream it if I wanted to have my phone hooked up while I’m driving. I just never think about that, though. I’d much rather be able to turn on the radio and have it there. 😦
You can almost hear the kool jazz music coming through the photos, love it.
it’s such a neat mural!
Wow! I love this, Resa! Vibrant colors, intriguing personalities, and music! What more could we want? Very Kool, my friend! 🥰🎼😍🎶😎
The first time i saw it, it was surrounded with construction gak.
But I went back! I had to! 🥰🎼😍🎶😎🥰🎼😍🎶😎
Good thing you did! 😍😍😍💝🎼🎼
