IF-Coltrane Plays His "Shiny" Saxophone

"Over all, I think the main thing a musician would like to do is give a picture to the listener of the many wonderful things that he knows of and senses in the universe. . . That’s what I would like to do. I think that’s one of the greatest things you can do in life and we all try to do it in some way. The musician’s is through his music." -John Coltrane

This is a piece I did for a good friend and colleague as a birthday gift for her husband, who, as you might guess, is a big jazz aficionado.  I love music myself, and have been wanting to do some illustrations of my favorite musicians.  Perhaps this will be number one in a series...

Great illo! Always loved how the sax not only sounds so soulful, but it practically glows!
