Two of the greatest masters of their own generation!
Here's a shot I took of bassist Sean Conely on a recording session we did together about a year ago.
Here's a shot I took of Justin during our tour in Japan a couple years ago. Justin one of my very favorite drummers. We'll be touring some more later this year!
An intense moment from the cremation ceremony I saw in Bali.
As some of you might know, I really like monkeys. Here are some pictures I took in the Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali.
I couldn't get my eyes off this lady. Any time I clicked my camera towards her, I got a shot I liked.
Before going nuts with my camera at this public cremation ceremony, I was looking around to see if there was anyone else, who's not a foreigner, taking pictures. I realized so many people were documenting the last moments of their loved ones with cameras and cellphones. This is such a vastly different attitude towards a funeral than we have in the west - it felt sad yet celebratory at the same time.
Here's another shot I took at the public cremation ceremony I widnessed in my trip to Bali.
I took this one is Bali. This band was playing while a public cremation ceremony took place. This was definitely one of the most moving situations I've ever been in - I'll be posting more pics from there in the coming days!
Etienne Charles! I took this one on a tour I did with this fantastic musician and his great band. That was such a fun trip!
Here's a shot I took of the legendary Tom Harrell this past summer in Langnau.
I noticed this introspective fela in Samois-sur-Seine after playing a set with my band at the Django Reinhardt Jazz Festival. I couldn't resist capturing this candid moment.
Here's a weather appropriate shot I took about a year ago. Be safe out there NY & North-East-Coast folks!
One of my favorite guitar players of all time, Mr. John Scofield. I took this one at the Blue Note in NY. That was an incredible show!
Avishai Cohen has been one of my biggest inspirations ever since I was a little kid. I took this one during our week-long jazz clinic in Sienna in the summer of 2013.
A shot I took in a session I did with Dan Kaufman's band (beautiful record! I'll let you know when I know the release date) featuring one of my favorite drummers, and people, in the world - the great Johnathan Blake!
I took this one in a temple I visited in a recent trip to Japan.
