illustration for Orkesterjournalen #1 2013.
The jazz pianist and composer Dave Bruebeck died in december last year, at 92, and I made this portrait for an article about him in the latest issue of Orkesterjournalen.

So it was sad to hear of Dave Brubeck's death in december last year. But I thought it might be nice to do some kind of tribute to him, in picture form. It all resulted in a picture that is now published with an article in Orkesterjournalen # 1 2013
The picture on the front of Time Out is painted by S.Neil Fujita (who made many album covers, including Charles Mingus' Mingus Ah Um ") and I painted a part of the painting, as a background for the illustration.
Another disc with the Dave Brubeck quartet that I can recommend, is Jazz Impressions of Japan:
