Benedetto is a proud sponsor of the Savannah Jazz Festival (SJF), bringing in many of our artists. This year’s Festival original art was created by the talented Rose Lane White Leavell, a fifth generation Georgian, highly accomplished fine artist, tree farmer, and conservationist. She is also a wardrobe manager for a little rock band called the Rolling Stones. She and her rock-star husband, Chuck Leavell manage Charlane Plantation and also have a home in Savannah. The painting is entitled “Down by the Riverside” and is set on Johnny Mercer’s Moon River. It depicts Savannah legend Ben Tucker, playing with local jazz hero, our very own Howard Paul with Lena Horne singing under the Spanish moss at sunset. Truly a Savannah Jazz Fantasy! Stay tuned for the release of the annual poster you can bring home!
