The camera doesn't make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But, you have to SEE.

I should Really Come back to this...

So,  I haven't been on this page in a while. I come back and I have photographic goodies.

Currently I am studying piano with Adam Birbuam and I came to his gig at smalls, and promised him photos. I've created a new gallery for these photos which is still a work in process as I haven't gotten though the post of all of the "good" images. For this Gig, it was Adam on keys, Yasushi Nakamura on Bass, and Rodney Green on drums.

Speaking of Adam, I also saw him last night at the Village Vanguard  with The Al Foster : counts the number of people that were playing : quartet was performing. It included Al Foster on Drums, Adam Birbuam on Piano, Dezron Douglas on bass, and JD Allen on saxophone. ( Sorry if I don't have links up but if there isn't a link they don't have a personal website that isn't a myspace/facebook page and I'm not going to link to any social networking sites here ) It was a good night, they did some standards. I wish they allowed photography during the show as I was sitting right behind the piano the first set and could have had my pick of seats during the second so that I could get the rest of the band, but oh well. What can you do?

Hopefully, If i can find time between trying to learn two instruments, I'll get out to more gigs and take more photos. I'm also debating putting up some notes about what I do when it comes to post processing images and how I get shots in the low light conditions that are present in most jazz clubs. So, yes, I'm trying to prevent any more dust from settling on this website. There are a few more gigs I am hoping to check out coming up. Dezron Douglas is going to be at Smalls towards the end of March, and I'm hoping to go camera in hand. Um, there's something else coming up April 11 where harpist Brandee Younger, but I'm not sure if I'm going to that. if I do and they allow it, I'll have some more photos. lol.

Now that all of that has been said, I've posted some of the shots below but enjoy the gallery which has all of the images which have been processed from that night. Until later!
