#90 Jazz Fest photos

Ok, here are some recent photos I shot from the Ottawa International Jazz Festival. I shot a couple of days for the Ottawa Sun – other freelancing. The Jazz Fest continues to July 1. Check it out!

Over the next few days I will be posting a few highlights starting with Buddy DeFranco – an 85 year old master clarinetist. He’s been performing for 73 years and, I imagine, has no desire to retire.

Coming up later this week I will post photos of Wynton Marsalis and Herbie Hancock.

Have fun,
