Trio thumbnail 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.

to the Sun Ra page 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 Gallery 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.

Photos in Memory of Hilton Ruiz

I met Hilton through Byron Morris when he and Eddie Allen renergized Byron's band Unity. Byron and I collaborated on a page of my photos in memory of Hilton Ruiz and it was originally placed on Byron's website. Hilton was a dynamic player and a beautiful warm and positive person. He is deeply missed.
