Today’s artwork is another piece done on a map. This lady has the Soviet Union on her shoulder. Her lungs are full of the Arctic Ocean. She has Greenland below the belt and the U.K. at her point. WOW! Beautiful. This is an India ink drawing/painting, done in the late 1990’s – early 2000’s.
Today’s music is another Jamula piece, for the moment designated as, “Jam the Day.” Jamula, for the record, was largely put out as an idea by Tom Smith, the mouth organ player. He and Jerry Farnsworth go way, way back; and once Scot hit the mix, the Jamula brew--came through. Scot played is groovy, groovy bass thing in Jamula. Bass became a lead instrument in the ensemble. Jamming along tonight on drums is the late, lately seen on the Lost Hi-way, Kenny Wright. Tom Smith is kicking ass on mouth organ, and Jerry is right there too. Jamula’s music was special.
