The Garden Stage

Recently I went to the Monterrey Jazz Festival after an absence of 10 years, and found it to be the same wonderful experience. Fantastic music non stop for 3 days and happy people in a beautiful environment .
Here is a sketch of one stage:  4 musicians playing with great energy in front of striking graphics of the backdrop.
