Every photo tells a story.

Horace Silver and his family came in at the end of Andy Bey’s first set at The Jazz Bakery on that evening. I was very honored take this photo of them together. They share a rich history of music.

Alton Parker - Ron Carter is not only one of my favorite bass player of all-time (Charnett Moffett is a very close second), he’s simply the greatest of all time also. I don’t know of any other bass player other than Stanley Clarke who has been around as long as these two have and still record and/or perform live around the world. He’s simply the king! Beautiful portrait James!
