Latin Jazz Stamp

In honor of "Hispanic Heritage Month" the postal service released a stamp celebrating Latin Jazz

With the issuance of the Latin Jazz stamp, the United States Postal Service® celebrates the rich musical heritage of the United States of America. The stamp features a bold, graphic design by San Francisco–based artist and Latin jazz fan Michael Bartalos of San Francisco, California. The design conveys the multicultural aspects of the music, its percussive and improvisational nature, and its rhythmic complexity.

Whatever, I'm gonna be waiting on that Arturo Sandoval or Tito Puente stamp, not some cartoon.
