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.

Continuing the momentum of studio sessions with Jazz masters. We finally got the illusive bassist David Craig.

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!
