Artist comment: This painting of Jimmy Mak’s is a tribute to Portland, Oregon’s favorite jazz mecca.  Sadly, after twenty years, the club closed on December 31, 2016, followed by Jimmy’s passing just one day later.  Jimmy built his club into one of the world’s best places to hear jazz, combining local and national talents, and I was proud to have my artwork featured on the walls. The entire music community in Portland is mourning his loss, but there is hope for the club to re-open in the future, carrying on Jimmy’s twenty year legacy.   The featured musicians, patrons and staff, including Jimmy himself, are clockwise from left:  Jim Makarounis, Lisa Boyle, JD Stubenberg, Janice Scroggins, Tony Pacini, Dan Balmer, Ed Bennett, Mel Brown, Louis Pain, Eddie Martinez, Patrick Lamb, Renato Caranto, Thara Memory, Linda Hornbuckle, Bobby Torres. Balcony from left to right: Stan Bock, Warren Rand, Derek Sims.
