Jazz Folio – Jazz Artwork inspired by Jazz Musicians – is a collection of 72 black and white drawings of the great jazz masters of the postwar period, from Cannonball Adderley and Chet Baker, through to Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Art Blakey, to David Sanborn and Joe Zawinul, all available as limited edition prints, printed on 130 gsm quality art paper, embossed with the Impressions seal, and numbered and signed by the internationally acclaimed artist Alastair Graham.
The original CD-sized book “ Impressions: Jazz Masters in Black and white ” (196 pages, 57 jazz greats ) is also available as a stunning and inexpensive gift for any jazz lover.
These wonderful illustrations are available as signed limited edition prints, printed on 130 gsm quality art paper, imprinted with the Impressions stamp, and signed by the artist.
Alastair Graham's original Impressions folio is also published in a superb CD-sized book, containing 196 pages of 57 Jazz Greats from Ellington, Parker, Miles and Coltrane to Zawinul, Brecker and Metheny. A stunning and inexpensive gift (only £12) for any jazz lover.
Born in London and educated by Duke Ellington and Miles Davis, Alastair Graham has been a professional artist for forty years, working in Animation and Publishing, and has only relatively recently developed his technique to the point where his art can fully express his highly imaginative response to the music and musicians he loves. The JazzFolio Impressions collection has taken over 12 years to reach its current size of 71 images, and the search for a sympathetic publisher goes on, as does his animation of the Brazilian-Electro music of the late Suba.
