Jazz Singers

Dianne-Reeve

I photographed  Dianne Reeves and Kurt Elling last night at the Belllevue Jazz Festival. What a treat.  Two of the top jazz vocalists around today. Dianne Reeves performed last night in the Meydenbauer Center with her Strings Attached ensemble featuring guitarists Russell Malone and Romero Lubambo. They were fantastic. I last photographer Russell at the Triple Door back in March playing a duet with Bill Frisell.

 

 

Kurt-2

Kurt Elling performed with Laurence Hobgood on piano, Rob Amster on bass, and Ulysses Owens Jr on drums. The trio created a great sound backing Kurt in a marvelous performance. He was so cool and suave.
