Frank Sinatra is the entertainer featured on the 2012 Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM) poster for this April’s global celebration.
John Edward Hasse, the National Museum of American History’s Curator of American Music, worked with the renowned artist LeRoy Neiman and Frank Sinatra Enterprises to secure the artwork featured on Mr. Sinatra’s 1993 album Duets.
This is the fourth JAM poster to highlight artwork from Mr. Neiman’s jazz collection. The others are: Duke Ellington (2006), Louis Armstrong (2007), and Dave Brubeck (2010), which features a portrait that Mr. Neiman created for JAM to pay tribute to Mr. Brubeck’s career and recognition as a 2009 Kennedy Center Honoree.
Courtesy of the Smithsonian please note: all posters are free, and there is no limit on quantity (while supplies last).
