|The passing of Alvin Fielder January 5, 2019 has ended this trio, but Kidd and Joel will carry on. The Kidd Jordan-Joel Futterman-Alvin Fielder Trio had brought 'listening' to a new level. They have a number of recordings and appeared at various Vision Festival in New York, the Tampere Festival in Finland & other national and international venues . My page has lots of photos and information about their CDs, some with my photos.
|Sun Ra was a great treat to hear and a wonderful subject to photograph. His listeners seems to grow daily, despite his departure from this planet in 1993. I offer a sample gallery of photos of Sun Ra, his compatriots, and the Sun Ra Arkestra now led by Marshall Allen - that is delightfully carrying on his music and memory.
|Lester Bowie was the most important trumpeter of the last 30 years, but was marginalized by the media and industry as "avant garde" - despite his obvious cross-over appeal. Lester personified both the best of the music and the worst of the problems in the music business. In tribute to Lester, I present a gallery of photos selected from the many I was delighted to take of this great artist.
|Byron Morris led Unity beginning in the '70s, and the band had been reenergized with the additions of Hilton Ruiz on piano and Eddie Allen on trumpet and musical director. I did the graphic layout and interior photography for their CD, "Live at the East Coast Jazz Festival."
Their last CD was "Byron Morris & Unity Y2K" for which I did the photogrpahy and graphic layout, and collaborated with Byron on the design. Click HERE to see a page with my photos from the album package.
