Perry's Jazz on Bourbon Street
If you were fortunate enough to find yourself in New Orleans in the mid nineteen-hundreds you would know that down on Bourbon Street you could find the greatest Jazz Club there ever was. The music started right around sun down, and it did not stop until the sun was coming back up. Of all the sights, sounds, and colors of downtown New Orleans nothing could compare to Perry’s Jazz on Bourbon Street.
As good as this story sounds, it is actually fictional. This piece was created specifically for a customer’s father who loves New Orleans Jazz, and of course his name is Perry. He is also an art lover and a great fan of Charles Schulz and Pablo Picasso. All of these factors went into creating a piece specifically for him. The creation of this piece however does bring forth an interesting question. While there is no historical record that Perry’s Jazz on Bourbon Street was ever established; the question is… does that mean it didn’t actually exist?
