Santa Cruz in Pictures
A really long night. Went to the Kuumbwa Jazz Center around 6 and just got back.
Behold the confluence of digital photography and jazz.
Sound check at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center. Whose purse is that?
Walter Blanding, Jr. blowing during sound check.
The group minus Wynton at sound check.
“Top Professor” E. Lewis while his fingers take flight.
The newly wed Carlos cleans his bass.
Walter Blanding, Jr. is engaged in a deep conversation with Drue Kataoka, an artist who paints jazz images. Drue, of course, is thinking “How much longer do I have to listen to this guy?” Kidding aside, check out Drue’s website http://www.drue.net/Drue_Kataoka_photos.html
The small hall where the quintent performed.
The crowd gathers.
The commemorative deck of cards for the tour. If you’d like one, I could hold one for you.
Elvis has entered the building.
Kevin Lee the magician/comedian opens the night for the quintet.
Where are the tomatoes?
The disappearing bottle act. Kevin also does a disappearing and reappearing girlfriend act…in emergency situations.
The key to life is to befriend Dennis Jeeter, the head of touring and sales for Wynton. He’s looking at all the money in his hand and thinking “3 pound steak dinner.”
Ali, Can you hear me now?
Wynton talking with one of the Kuumbwa Jazz Center’s head honchos at the post concert reception.
