This Dizzy Gillespie portrait became an instant fave, the day I was introduced to the work of James Gayles via a friend who works with the Bay Area painter and illustrator at the Ethnic Arts Institute. Of the many brilliant homages to jazz figures that Gayles has created, this particular work sees the transformative power of the artist’s journey come through as expressively as a Bebop riff.
