Hope you're feeling better Oscar. You looked so uncomfortable in the illustrations on your other blog. All good wishes for a speedy recovery.
These illustrations are so full of the music I can almost here it. I've always loved your works where you portray the jazz musicians. I can see that your love for the music is extended through your artwork. I can't describe in words how they make me feel. I can only tell you that I love them.

Dear Donnachada: It is very nice of you to say what you say...Thanks.
I love music..My wife says that when I talk about musicians I sound as if I were talking about personal friends.

I well believe it Oscar. I bet your record collection is huge, and I'll bet that they are actual records, not cd's.
