RECENTLY . . . "A Great Day in Milwaukee" organized by the Milwaukee Jazz Institute in The Milwaukee Center in Milwaukee, WI.

This is a gathering of the Milwaukee jazz community featuring many legendary jazz musicians who have entertained our community for decades.

This portrait is a tribute to the famous "A Great Day in Harlem" portrait of jazz greats created in 1958.

Talk about a challenging group portrait!!!
