Jack Dowd's 27

Jack Dowd is an amazing American artist who has recently completed a series of portraits of music personalities who share the ironic  distinction of having died at the tender young age of 27. Most recently, this being the fate of Grammy winner, Amy Winehouse. To celebrate the work, Dowd recently exhibited the portraits as a collection at the Marie Selby Gallery in Sarasota, Florida. As part of the exhibition, Dowd and his band did a musical evening of songs and rememberings related to his personal feelings about twelve of the personalities he painted. I happened to be in town for the evening and took along my trusty Samsung NV7 and managed to film a couple of their songs related to Al Wilson of Canned Heat, Jimmy Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Kurt Cobain. After I looked at the footage, I thought it would be interesting to create a kind of a "sketch" as to how elements for a finished documentary on the subject could go together. Thanks for the invite Jack, and best wishes for continued success with the exhibition.
