Tarzana Bar

Tarzana Bar—sketch in oil. A small jazz combo entertains the customers at a bar in Tarzana, California. Tarzana is one of those towns in the "Valley" between Los Angeles and Oxnard. An endless procession of housing with some shopping and an occaisonal defense plant thrown in. Tarzana is one of the more playfully named communities.

As I recall, the bartender's name was really "Joe" and I kidded him: "Set 'em up, Joe, just one more for the road," as in the Frank Sinatra boozey ballad. I think he heard that every night.
