Great painting! The building, street, and shadows are great!

I used to live down the street from this corner back in the early 80s, when this building was "Cobb's Corner," a blues and jazz club. In the warm weather you could hear the music drift up Willis through your open windows.

Steve,

I used to live up the street from here, in the early 80s, back when this building was called "Cobb's Corner," and was a blues and jazz club. When the waether was warm and your windows were open, you could hear the music.

Thanks Patrick, I love it when you can hear a sax playing in the city.
