Billy Strayhorn, the creator of many well known Duke Ellington compositions, is an unsung legend of African Classical Music (jazz).
He was a musical genius who composed the some of the most lyrical music in history, particularly “Lush Life” and “Take the A Train”. This original pencil drawing is rendered on 18×24 Strathmore off-white achival paper and is done with a soft blended texture that exudes a feeling of warmth when viewed in person.
I hope you can experience a sense of the depth of the man. Listen to his music.
