With a waistcoat like that, just how could I resist accepting Tony Cunningham’s commission to paint his portrait on trombone. Thank you for the opportunity Tony and for the wonderful session with Jazz Revisited at Lemsford Jazz Club.

Tony Cunningham Trombonist
Waistcoat a’sparkle
Trombone ablaze
A glint in his eyes
His jazz fans amazed.
