New Jazz Films and Photos

Next week is the official launch of the San Francisco Traditional Jazz Society online exhibit at Stanford Libraries.   I’ve been working on this exhibit as a director, editor, and content creator for about a year now, and it has been a terrific project.  We have already gotten some nice press in the SF Chronicle.

Huge thanks to my dear friend, bandleader and jazz historian Clint Baker (in the frame above) who curated the exhibit and brought me on the project.  Check his schedule if you are in the Palo Alto area on a Friday evening; he often performs at Cafe Borrone in Menlo Park.  Or catch his radio program on KCSM.

The Stanford exhibit contains hundreds of historic photos of San Francisco jazz musicians and clubs, archival video and audio, scores, and 2 complete scrapbooks prepared by Turk Murphy during the 30s and 40s.  We created 11 new films as well. The exhibit is live already, so explore and enjoy.

More recently I had the great pleasure to photograph living jazz greats for the Peninsula Symphony’s “Reunion” concert, featuring David Benoit, Dan and Chris Brubeck (below), and Taylor Eigsti.  You can see the full set of publicity photos here.
