I first became aware of Zitkala-Sa as a women composer. The first women composer of Native American descent to compose an Opera.
Thru her advocacy for Native American rights her people won the right to vote. Her stories of growing up between two cultures, losing and finding her identity and championing the cause of Native Peoples is a remarkable journey. One of my women heros that time has forgotten but whose acts are remarkable and touching.
James Reese Europe and the Harlem Hell Fighters were not only World War 1 heros but they lit the fuse for jazz in Europe and the world. Read about this remarkable African American music pioneer and his tremendous contribution to American music.
Every band room in America should have a picture of John Philip Sousa in it. He was so popular that every community and many businesses sponsored their own concert bands. It's not a far stretch to say that there would not be a band program in America if it wasn't for John Philip Sousa.
Painting in blues and blue greens with lots of white I purposed to maintain that light and airy sound I associate with the saxophone and real cool jazz. That 50's sound that was so light and breathy you could just sit by the beach and watch the sail boats floating by. Ira reminds me of all that.
Listening to Jim Croce sing while painting has been one of my favorite things. "I've Got a Name," and "Time in a Bottle" are timeless pieces. There exists music and art compositions that fit that description and these are among those that do.
Lenny Kravitz has all the element of the classic rock star. For me he has all the ingredients I look for in an image plus. Great features, distinct and sharp appearance and the music is just awesome. Here's a few notes on my Lenny time.
