It’s drawing number 200! On this auspicious occasion, I’ve posted this tribute to the jazz composer and pianist Eubie Blake. The drawing depicts a local piano player who I actually came across on Oakland public access. He was actually playing “Let’s Do It (Let’s Fall in Love),” the Cole Porter standard. In this drawing, though, he is playing “I’m Just Wild about Harry” by Eubie Black and Noble Sissle. The sheet music in the background is for the same song.
Thanks for taking this ride with me. I hope you enjoy the next 200 drawings.
