Jazz is like a highly-caffeinated cup of coffee: It’s smooth, spastic, rich in tone, and bold in character. It peps you up, throws you down, evens you out, and keeps you from sleep. It makes you feel feelings; it makes you feel cooler than you are; and it will never render you crashing at 2 p.m. (2 a.m. is more like it) because Jazz is never played at this time (it’s like, a law or something).
As a musical sub-genre, Jazz is best played between midnight and sunrise and its only prereqs are that you’re capable of handling lengthy jam sessions and have a mild to moderate problem with alcohol. In On the Road by Jack Kerouac, he paints the scenes of American Jazz at its apex (1940s-1950s) and the elation he felt when he listened:
“At this time, 1947, bop [Jazz] was going like mad all over America. The fellows at the Loop blew, but with a tired air, because bop was somewhere between its Charlie Parker Ornithology period and another period that began with Miles Davis. And as I sat there listening to that sound of the light which bop has come to represent for all of us, I thought of all my friends from one end of the country to the other and how they were really all in the same vast backyard doing something so frantic and rushing-about.”
Now imagine (if you will) that Kerouac was writing about animals instead of people. What do you envision? If it’s anything like The Jazz Bunny art print from Society 6, then we’re on the same page. This custom trimmed, ultra-smooth art print by artist, Oliver Lake, is perfect for wee Jazz fans with a hankering for fusion-filled bass lines played by bunnies in purple gangster suits and creepers.
Available in sizes from mini to extra large, the vibrancy of the Jazz Bunny print is pleasing to the eye and a wonderful way to introduce your child to the unbridled world of Jazzzzzzzzz. Though you may want to tuck them in before the sun rises. And also, give them something non-alcoholic like juice or milk. Because you did not know this before.
Here’s a band called Jazz Bunny. They’re Jazzy snazzy. GO AND DIG ‘EM!
