"As a jazz record collector and massive jazz enthusiast, there are very few cities more influential than Detroit – Jazz City – the birthplace and home of so many of Jazz's great artists and performers. From Phil Ranelin and Tribe Records, to Yusef Lateef, to JDilla and Slum Village, Detroit is a mecca for the artform. For this print I wanted to outwardly pay homage to my individual favorites from the vaults of the Motor City. So I decided to create my own personal A Great Day in Detroit (riffing off the legendary, iconic A Great Day In Harlem Photograph) using my signature Moster characters. Each Monster takes on a slight likeness to his or her jazz giant.....for colors, I dug into Detroit again, adopting the full color palette of the history of the Detroit Tigers which I have always admired as a tremendous range and combination of colors......oranges, tans, golds, warm greys and a strong navy blue. In my own personal twisted logic I freely associate that palette with the hues and tones of many of the great jazz album covers of the Impulse and Blue Note labels."  - Kevin Lyons
