Tony Bennett

I have been a Tony Bennett fan since the sixties. I did some research on Tony and I found out he marched with Harry Belafonte and Martin Luther King in Selma Alabama. He has been a civil rights advocate for years. He has performed over six decades. He is 91 and still performing concerts.

Tony Bennett is one of the most successful legendary jazz and popular musicians of our time. He has sold over 50 million records worldwide, is a published author, and a successful painter. Mr. Bennett has been inducted into the Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame, and in 2002 received a lifetime achievement award from ASCAP.

He has won fifteen Grammy Awards, two Emmy Awards, and the National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Award.

Gregory Sipp to show mosaic art at the 2017 Newport Jazz Festival

I have been a jazz guy most of my life. I started listening to jazz when I was in the eighth grade. I have wanted to go the Newport Jazz Festival for many years. I know it is the oldest and most respected Jazz Festival in America.

To be in this environment and to be selling my work is truly an honor. My booth will be in the Main Stage area. The name of my business is Gregory Sipp Mosaic Artistry. I make glass mosaic portraits of Jazz artists. I also sell prints of my mosaics. My work was featured on the poster of last year’s Chicago Jazz Festival.

I hope you can come to the festival and please stop by my booth at the 2017 Newport Jazz Festival.

The Great Ray Charles

I did this mosaic of Ray Charles because he was such a dynamic
singer and inspiration for a lot of people. The fact that he was blind
never seemed to matter to him. I liked the fact that he seemed to
really love what he did. And he played and sang with such energy
and passion.
