Today we finished processing several Gigabytes of audio tracks by these three jazz giants. The poster artist is Hawaii based Rosalinda Kolb, and some notes on her work, which we found at The Contemporary Museum in Honolulu, say her current "…pastel compositions draw on her recent training in therapeutic massage, exploring the human desire for ritual activity and how that need is fulfilled in contemporary society": we think she would understand our need for a ritual to mark the end of the audio project, and possibly some therapeutic massage, too!

The TMW (Thelonius Monk Website) page displaying all three posters also gives contact details for Rosalinda Kolb, and details of how you may order posters direct from the artist. Fade out to the sound of Monk's rendition of 'Sophisticated Lady'…

Oh, what a day-to-day business life is.
