I had a great time capturing images of the New York Jazz scene. If you are going to NYC I highly recommend Smalls Jazz Club and Mezzrow. More images from my trip are posted on my music photography facebook page
I was in Edinburgh and not able to be at the Redaction Revisited performance at the Pyramid Club on 9 August 2016, lucky Mark Lockett had arranged for Thomas Lambert to record the evening for me. We have never done a performance involving projection before and there was no time for a rehearsal as Mark had just got off a plane from NY and was about to start a NZ tour with the Dan Bolton Quartet. On the whole I think it worked out well.
My images will be the basis for an audio visual performance in New Zealand. Following on from the success of our album Redaction, Mark Lockett will be collaborating with taonga puoro exponent Alistair Fraser to explore a contemporary meeting between traditional instruments and instinctive percussion
“promising to be spontaneous improvisations facilitating an ongoing conversation between traditional and contemporary culture”
LOCATION: Pyramid Club, 272 Taranaki St, Wellington, New Zealand
