About

This work is from a series entitled Of the Blues, in which Romare Beaden meditates upon the evolution of African American music from the street bands of New Orleans to the jazz clubs of Harlem. Freely working with collage and paint, the artist sought to visualize the distinctive soundscapes of the music.
