I'm very impressed to write to you, because I know what you are able to do with a trumpet !!
So, at this time near Nice and Monaco we are looking for musicians like you, they are so rare!
I hope you will come in my area of France, why not?
That's true we have many movies in this area, I know that because I'm a police officer and sometimes we are making the security around the "movie's area !
I appreciate what you are writing to me, I'm very honoured!
All my best regards!
P.S: If you want, you can have a look of what I did with my last painting of Stan Getz!
May be, one day, I will draw you on a painting, that's a good idea!
Thank you very much for your answer! Of course, I know Sydney Bechet, I've got many compact disc of him...because I play "Petite fleur", "les oignons" and others songs he made with my saxophone, a soprano one!
I know that you were playing with DANKO Harold (pianist) and that you play both saxophone & trumpet!
If you can send me a very good picture of you, it will be a pleasure for me to paint you ! It will be a big honour!
As you see, I am trying actually to paint with the music of the album "Kind of Blue" of Miles Davis, because I am always painting with the music of the people I paint !
You can see the sketch of my version of " Kind of blue" on my personal page of this excellent web site that Bev Getz do !
She looks like a very kind woman, I like her spirit ! I hope to help her to found a museum to honourate her dad ! "may be one day ", will see !
With the video you send to Bev, I think I can draw something!
I could say that because I met him personnaly during few minutes in Saint-Marteen in the French West Indies!
At this time, I was a young police officer and I had the opportunity to see the big band of Lionel HAMPTON ...it was for me a great moment when at the end of his performance (show) I was having the rights to speak with him for about 15 minutes, I often think about the luck I was having to meet such a beautiful musician ...it was amazing for me to see this "old man" beeing "so young" when he was playing !!! It was incredible ...that was the time which I began to play by myself saxophone....in fact...I am still trying to play music...may be to stay "Young" !!!
Jazz is amazing to be younger, this music is a stimulant ! AWESOME !!
I saw the video you told me with Bob Wilber, this song "SI TU VOIS MA MERE" is very well played, it sounds beautiful! Really, I like it so much that I will try to play it with my soprano saxophone !
I would like to tell you that I appreciate your congratulations for what I've done with the painting of Stan! I also would like to say you that the painting done for your very first album live at Eddie Condon's is very nice and very well done ! Truly ! I hope you will upload FYI !
By the way, I put your video with Bob wilber on the site like that all the people of this excellent web site could see it, sure they will appreciate !
All my best regards, Sir!
Thank you so much for your mail! I know I'm not a real musician because I just started to learn music to late but that 's true that I love music specially Jazz and blues !
I would like to be able to do a "jam session" with true musicians like you ...may be one day..I've just made my 45 years old this week and may be in many years I could be good enought to play with others!
Learning by myself is my pleasure because with my job as police officer I work "night & day" and this is not possible for me to learn with a teacher...that's why I'm learning trying to copy what I listen!
Thank you so much...by the way, I did not forget you at all, I've started to paint your portrait and it is quite good ...so when I will finish it I will take a picture of this paint and I will add it on this web site!
Hope you are fine!!!
All my best!
Have a nice day!
