Phil Lynott was born 70 years ago on this day and Louis Stewart, another Irish guitar-wielding genius from the field of jazz, died four years ago today.
Between the ages of 15 to 18, myself and my brother-in-arms @samjcomerford would head out to various jazz gigs around Dublin’s City Centre. Despite being underage, we were usually let in because it was clear we were there for the music above all else. In the now sadly-closed upstairs room of JJ Smyths on Aungier Street, we saw some cracking acts, including the mighty Louis Stewart. Stewart, who died four years ago today, was without a doubt one of the greatest jazz guitarists this country had ever produced. A muso’s muso, there was something of the hypnotist or the shaman in how he played, for he could bring an entire room to enraptured silence when he played. To see a master demonstrate his skills is a rare enough thing in this world, and is truly something to savored. (Apologies for the photo being cropped, it was the smallest I could edit it down to). ##onthisdy #jjsmyths #phillynott #tributepoem #jazz #jazzmaster #jazzguitar #jazzmusician #jazzlover #dublinjazz #dublinjazz #livejazz #jazzindublin #dublinbynight #livenusicinsublin #dublinjazzcoop #jjsmyths #jjs #gig #concert #live #musician

Hey guys, so I've had an idea! I'm going to start a series illustrating Dublin Pubs! I don't know how many or what criteria I'll be choosing the pubs on yet... maybe the quality of the Guinness? The sassiness of bar staff? How funny the locals are? ...I dunno but I want to make it a regular thing. Whatcha think? could be class! let me know! Anyway, The first one I completed is the famous Jazz and Blues bar @jjsmyths.dublin in #Dublin city centre down on Aungier Street. JJ's was Dublin's oldest jazz club and one of the most important venues for Dublin's jazz scene.

Ive seen so many amazing musicians do their thing here like
@chrisguilfoyleguitar
@bardono2
@mattjttam

It's since been sold, closed down and is due to be renovated into a modern pub/ apartment complex pause for the collective sigh of despair This is my tribute to the birthplace of Thomas Moore (author of the Minstrel Boy), One of Brendan Behan's regular Haunts and generally one of Dublin's coolest pubs. If you want a print of this DM me here or email me at patrickmurphydraws@gmail.com Same goes if you want a custom print done! Also, Let me know what you think I should do next?
