I have once again had one of those experiences when I have gone to see someone I know in  a concert and have found myself goofy and speechless by talent that just blows me away.

I recently photographed Gordon Goodwin for his newly released CD That’s How We Roll. A delight and a pleasure to work with. As long as I have known him I have been aware of his talent and musical genius – just part of the reality that comes when the phrase “Grammy Award Winner” precedes a name – but watching this man live on stage is . . . amazing.

The release party for the album was a couple of weeks ago.  In a venue packed with aficionados and the elite of the jazz world, Gordon and his Big Phat Band did what they do.  The crowd was ecstatic from the very first note. By the end, they were out of control.

Once again, I have been awed and schooled with what the music world has recognized and honored for years. Seriously, this guy is unbelievable.

I would love to say that this is just a result of my lighting and photoshopping skill – but seriously . . .

Sometimes youth, genetics, dedication, and hard work just piss me off.
