Jazz portraits by Lola Lonli

A series of paintings «Jazz portraits» depicts my favorite musicians in the creative process together with the energy that manifests itself in interaction with their music. All the paintings of this series were drawn while listening to their music. Portraits of Billy Holiday, Lester Young and Jerry Mulligan made from the video recording of song «Fine and mellow» in 1957, where they all participate.

Roy Eldrige was famous for his passion to competitions with other trumpeters. I think that his music is very similar to his character as person. I think best word for his music is – rollicking. Just to see expression on his face after a particularly successful chord, when he glances to other musicians to find out whether all noticed how steep the sound he produced and then blow away even better one.
