There is more and more art on Jefferson Street, and I haven’t been keeping up with it like I should. This piece is by Bryan Deese, who has done a number of music-themed murals in town. Follow that link to his website though and it doesn’t seem to have been updated recently – the last blog post is dated August, 2014, though I know this piece is very recent. He advertises both the website and his Instagram account on this mural – but the Instagram account is private, a bit unusual for an active artist. The artists depicted here are not identified, but it sure does look like Charlie Parker on sax and Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet. Here’s a video of them performing “Hot House” together in 1951. Pretty sharp!

Located on the west side of the Boost Mobile building at 2623 Jefferson Street. The mural faces 27th Avenue North, at the corner with Jefferson Street. There’s plenty of street and commercial parking in the area.
