I’ve recently been asked to capture a band for some print marketing – tricky since it’s a sextet and they tend to move around and block the view of the one behind. Of course, no flash. In any case I trotted out my ‘good’ camera last week, but found that night they were only a quintet. (see lower picture above). Last night I got one where nearly all their faces show and both they and I are happy with it.
For those who love jazz, the personnel are Al Bent on trombone, Vince Lateano on drums, Al Molina, trumpet and bandleader, Peter Barshay on bass and Larry Chinn on keyboard. They perform at the Seven Mile House in Brisbane, CA every Tuesday night – and I’m usually there enjoying the sea food, camaraderie and of course the music.
