Emancipated Artistry, Eclectic Sentiments & Flavorful Jazz

by Kim (writer), Los Angeles, September 25, 2009


Original works displayed in the community with warmth, wisdom and wonder.

An afternoon sizzling in temperature presented a haven of welcome relief at the Artists' Debut at the Cheryl Hines Studio in Los Angeles on September 19th. Original works exhibit in a splendid fashion. Ms. Hines had remarkable pieces available for admiring and for sale to take home for display in your home or office.

As you may have guessed I'm not referring to the Artist "Cheryl Hines" in Beverly Hills.

I'm speaking of a vibrant and creative entrepreneur whose goal is producing natural prints.

The works of art she creates convey the beauty, expression, chronicles, delight, poignant moments, and richness of African American life and other aspects of life from many perspectives.

In her 9 to 5 life she works at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA.

This however is a mere side gig to her true passion - Drawing.

Music was provided for the event by Trio from the World Stage Jazz Ensemble Workshop -

Nathan Martin - Saxophone

Velva Davis - Bass

Kim Vinson - Flute

Jazz Standards, Be-Bop, Blues, and a Ballad or two were served for soul and spirit refreshment along with the appetizers and drinks for the physical man.

Thelonius Monk's "Blue Monk",  Sonny Rollin's "Serenade to a Cuckoo" and "Blue 7",  Charlie parker's "Billie's Bounce", Duke Ellington's "Satin Doll", Kenny Dorham's "Blue Bossa", Miles Davis', "Blues by Five, Johnny Green's, "Body and Soul, and Ann Ronnell's, "Willow Weep for Me" were just a few of songs shared by the trio to give a tribute to the Artist at her Debut.

It was a great time of relaxing, networking, and most of all admiring some fabulous creations and sharing with friends and community.
