Hymn to Freedom (Oscar Peterson)

hymn to freedom op (copy)version1

The Inspiration:

freehand and painted in Water based Oils and Graphite Pencil

Commissioned by Mr Will Allen. A friend from my local Tennis Club. Will composed a piece of music on Piano, which he kindly let me use for my Promotional Video (created on January 21 2015 by Martina Kabelkova and Tim Partridge). In return, as a thank you to Will,  I created Will’s musical hero, Oscar Peterson performing in a Jazz Concert scene before you.

The Jazz Concert took place at the Jazzhus Montmartre, Copenhagen, Denmark in 1964. (A historic, legendary Jazz Venue which opened in 1959).

With Oscar Peterson on Piano, Ray Brown on Bass and Ed’ Thingpen on Drums.

Figurative and Portrait.
