A few years ago, I had the pleasure of photographing the JLCO with Wynton Marsalis at Davies Symphony Hall for one of the final concerts of the SFJAZZ Spring Season 2011. It was truly a spectacular evening of music. Last night,the JLCO with Wynton Marsalis opened their four day run at the SFJAZZ Center Miner Auditorium to sold out audiences throughout the weekend.

This was a incredible evening of music with the Robert Glasper Experiment at The New Parish in Oakland. I have to give big thanks to my photographer friend, Lisa Taylor, for getting me into the upstairs lounge. We had a spectacular view of the stage. We even dragged a sofa to the edge the room…LOL!!!

I had taken this photo of the writer Amiri Baraka a few years ago after he performed his great writings with The Howard Wiley Trio @ Yoshi’s SF. I had forgotten about these photos until Baraka’s recent death. We, as photographers, document life and our work becomes a part of history. I am greatly honored that I was there that evening. R.I.P., great warrior!!!
