Jazz!-Lee Elias-1953

At first glance this might look like one of those "true-life" comics but it really isn't. In fact, it's a horror story from Harvey and Harvey did many of the best non-EC horror stories! Some really good art here by Lee Elias whose work later become a little TOO stylized for some tastes before morphing again into a nice illustrative style prior to his passing.

There's an awful lot of "it turned out" in this one, but to me it's interesting as I've been a musician my whole life, and when it comes to guitarist, technical vs feeling is a fight that never ends. Obviously, it's a number line with all shades of gray, and both ends have their charms, but it's interesting to see this same thing going on in the past, as it has since people first picked up instruments.
