A portrait of our revered musical control freak by renowned caricaturist (and Raymond Scott fan) Drew Friedman. The image depicts a beaming RS at the controls in a spaghetti-tangle of mic cords while his legendary 1937-39 Quintette runs through the ninety-sixth take of "Screwball Music for a Pack of Weary Sidemen."

You can buy a signed, limited edition fine art print of the painting: HERE. We're offering 30 numbered & titled giclĂ©e prints signed by the artist in a large (16" x 15") wall display format. The launch price is $300 for each of the first ten prints, after which the price will increase as the edition sells out.

Strange as it may seem considering the popularity and stature of Mr. Friedman's imagery, this is the first time his work is being offered in a signed limited edition.

  1. What a surprise and "treat"........that picture captures the essence of the RS environment.....except he would have been in PJs instead of a suit!!..but it's a great summary of a musical/electronic "life as we knew it."

    Loved the posts from Irwin and Jeff....THANKS two have made this centennial birthday a milestone.....and rescued RS from the "dustbin of history"....
