Some Jazz Photos
|My bass awaiting the start of the session . . .|
It's taken me a long while to realise that this means I am able to take a few shots during recording sessions and rehearsals. I haven't taken many so far simply because I keep forgetting that it's possible.
As I'm sure many of you are aware, there is great tradition of jazz photography and, as a teenager, my discovery of the music via records was immeasurably added to by the photographs of people like Herman Leonard. The music AND the pictures caught my soul and there was no going back.
I'm no Herman Leonard but hey, what the hell, taking the dozen photos below brought me real pleasure and I hope that, in a small way, they'll bring you a little pleasure too.
