about this painting:
THE SOUL OF THE SAXOPHONE
Over the past few decades, jazz has nearly become a synonym for classics. Born in the squalor of black slums and played by shabby misfits in greasy bars of Louisiana, it quickly spread all over the country replacing strict canons of chamber music with the unbridled energy of free improvisation. And while nowadays jazz is associated with sophistication and elitism, it used to be a riotous, revolutionary style that marked a change in social values and human consciousness. It was the new vision of the 20th century.
Fifty shades of saxophone
The instrument that is eternally associated with jazz is saxophone. Low, husky sound that vibrates in the depth of your ear sending shivers down your spine seems to be the essence of this music style. It can be humming and groovy, melodious and romantic, shrilly and heart-rending. The versatility of saxophone is literally boundless. The tunes it plays are just as bright and juicy as the colors used by Leonid Afremov in this modern art canvas. Carried away by the whirlpool of sounds, the musician in the picture seems to be merged with his instrument, his fingers moving intuitively up and down the tube led by inspiration. Music is being born right before our eyes.
