“Without the Past… There is No Future.”
Recently I was invited behind stage to hang with the staff of Jazz Fm and photograph behind the scenes at “Jazz Lives”.
These photographs were taken from on stage, behind the performers and facing the audience.
After the show we went to the lounge at The Novetel Hotel where were the musicians jammed to the wee hours of the morning.
So much talent collaborating in one room was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
