Jazz As Art

Sam Braysher and Michael Kanan

The Scene Is Clean

from the album Golden Earrings


When you listen to music, you sometimes conjure images in your mind. Our Jazz As Art series invites you to listen to a piece of jazz and as it plays, scroll down the page and see which of the pieces of art I have chosen comes closest to the pictures in your mind. Hopefully, this will introduce you to recordings and art works you might not have spent time with before.

The Scene Is Clean is taken from the 2017 album Golden Earrings by saxophonist Sam Braysher and pianist Michael Kanan. On the album, the musicians revive and interpret some of the lesser known standards from the Great American Songbook and other composers. The Scene Is Clean is a number originally by Tadd Dameron first recorded by Clifford Brown and Max Roach in 1956. Here is Sam and Michael's take on the number together with the seven pictures I have chosen to go with the music. See what you think.
