Bay Area Jazz Musicians

I have regularly photographed jazz musicians during live performances, for promoting in social media, their own use, for Jazz in the Neighborhood, the San Francisco Community Music Center‘s photography archives, and for the occasional CD cover. My photos of musicians and bands populated the “Jazz Hall of Fame” wall at the 7 Mile House in Brisbane, CA until the pandemic caused a change in their music offerings.  I generally post on my facebook page after arriving at every performance I attend as a way to notify fans of the performance. My two books: Bay Area Jazz and Bluesicians, Vols 1 & 2, available here or on were the first public viewing of my portraits.  I continue to update the shots below here and there, leaving the old and adding some new when they occur – but I admit I’m not diligent at this.  They are arranged alphabetically by first name.
