The View From Good Shepherd Center

TreeSunset
I was photographing the group 2nd Century Savage, at the Earshot Jazz concert series: Jazz: The Second Century at the Good Shepherd Center in Wallingford last Thursday, and it turned out not to be as hot as it was on Weds. There was a cool breeze drafting in the windows as the Good Shepherd Center sits on top of a hill and the space is on the 4th floor with a view of the sun setting over the Olympics. I was taken by the backlighting on this tree and focused on it rather than the sunset.

2nd-Century-Savage

2nd Century Savage is saxophonist, flutist, and composer John C. Savage with electronica artist, vusac (aka Isaac Peachin). Their mission, they say, is to expand the definition of jazz to include electronic instruments and live production techniques in tandem with contemporary jazz improvisation. The results are haunting, transporting, and strikingly novel. Their performances give the impression of swirling planes of sound, some melodic and familiar, some protean and mysterious, folding through untold dimensions of space and the mind.
