And All That Jazz ...
"Come on babe why don't we paint the town
And all that jazz ..."
~ "All That Jazz" (alternatively "And All That Jazz")
~ opening song of the 1975 musical "Chicago"
I captured this cool mural of jazz silhouettes of musicians on
the façade of the Hotel Lafayette, Easton, Pennsylvania as they literally paint
the town on a chilly November day. The mural features the shadows of musicians
on keyboard, saxophone, trumpet and other jazz instruments against bright colors.
The mural is an Easton Main Street Initiative public art
project created in 2012. It is a gift of the Easton Rotary Service Foundation
in memory of Ted Pierce, who was the station manager of WEST radio, an
outstanding and devoted citizen. He was a generous benefactor of the Easton
community and Easton Rotary Service Foundation, as well as an exemplary
journalist and key reporter on the Nuremburg War Crimes Trial for the Armed
Forces Network. Pierce left a large amount of money for the Rotary Club to use on Easton-based projects.
The mural was designed and painted on the Fourth Street side
of the building by the Freehand Mural Group of Easton.
