#91 Wynton Marsalis photo – Jazz Fest

One of the finest trumpeters alive, Wynton Marsalis played the Ottawa International Jazz Festival last week.

I was shooting for the Ottawa Sun Newspaper. It was fun, of course, but a significant challenge as Mr Marsalis sat in the middle of the back row of the Lincoln Centre Jazz Orchestra – very hard to capture from the media pit!

Some photos:
