Have not been able to visit with my jazz friends at their habitats lately. So it was a joy to be able to go listen to  Henry Darragh and his Sextet doing a live recording @ Ovations.

Dennis Dotson – trumpet, Andre Hayward – trombone, Seth Paynter – tenor, Glen Ackerman – bass, Richard Cholakian – drums, Henry Darragh – vocals/piano

We did a similar shoot a few years ago for Tianna Hall‘s CD “Ballads and Bossas”. But it is a new location and a new purpose.

No better reason to drop by the studio than needing photos of a new 7 string custom made Benedetto Guitar.

The Alisha Jane Pattillo Session.

Despite constant interruptions from malfunctioning equipment, we got some good shots, I think. Alisha brings the cool and big sound to the studio.

Have not done these in a while. A new home for the studio helped get the mood back.

As it so happens, the great jazz drummer and vibes man Tom Cummings is in town (back from Canada) for a studio session with Blue Bamboo Music. A Christmas album with Chris Cortez and Tianna Hall, which I am nominally (photographically speaking) involved as well.

We have been wanting to do a photo shoot for more than five years. It finally happened. Looking forward to our next session!
