I have started using jAlbum software to create new photo albums. Using it, I just added a new album of my photographs of the Art Ensemble of Chicago and its members, and an album of photos taken in the 1970s at or concerts produced by Keystone Korner, San Francisco.
Unfortunately, the Jazz T-shirts with my photos are once again unavailable. The Delta Haze company that took over for Gear,Ink. has stopped production for the foreseeable future. You can still click HERE to see the images.

This is a dynamic solo performance in which Joel stretched and explored the resonance and sonorities of a great piano. You can click on the image to visit his website and hear a sample, but please return.
During the 2016 DC Jazz Festival, in the Blagden Alley outdoor museum, artist Bill Warrell created the Art Ensemble mural project that was based on my photographs. The mural is still available for viewing along with other murals. The mural is seen below:.
Some of the Art Ensemble photos were also on exhibit during the festival and those, as well as many others, can be seen on the web gallery I created in tribute to the Art Ensemble and in collaboration with this project. Please click on the images to see the web gallery.
I attended four nights of VISION 21 - The VISION FESTIVAL in mid-June 2016
at Judson Memorial Church in Greenwich Village, NYC
It was a great festival, in addition to Connie Crothers, Kidd Jordan, Mike Reed, Wadada Leo Smith, and Cooper Moore, (above) I also photographed and enjoyed Hamid
Drake, Steve Swell, Joel Futterman, Alvin Fielder, Rob Brown, Dave Liebman, Jason Kao Hwang , Fay Victor, Reggie Nicholson , Matthew Shipp, Dave Liebman, Harrison Bankhead, Dave Burrell, Jemeel Moondoc, William Hooker, and so many more plus Poets, dancers and other Visual Artists!
On November 19, 2016 the Sun Ra Arkestra reappeared in Washington, DC at the Logan Fringe Arts Space. Bill Warrell's politcal paintings were on exhibit as a stark reminder of the times. Seen below are the Arkestra, me and Bill, and the indefatigible Marshall Allen.
I provided the cover photographs and design for The Question, A New Book by Joel Futterman. I also helped format and edit the text of this unique volume. Check it out.
Pianist Joel Futterman's creative energies have burst forth in this unusual and compelling volume. Joel's empathy for humanity is paramount. For a world with great economic disparities, and in social, political, and spiritual turmoil; Joel provides a series of dialogues of questions and parables that advance the search for inner and outer peace. The Question could be the answer.
The Reflection CD release by pianist Joel Futterman ia a two-CD set of 2014 solo recordings demonstrating Joel's multiple musical perspectives. I provided the photo/graphic and did the layout for the package.
