Bassist With Sax

Bassist Christian Dillingham performing in a group at the Jazz Record Art Collective.

“Jazz Record Art Collective is a collaboration between Chris Anderson, club manager of the Green Mill Jazz Club, and Joe Lanasa, director of the Fulton Street Collective. The series occurs the third Wednesday of every month and provides local bands and visual artists alike an opportunity to coproduce a live performance in response and homage to an iconic Jazz album.” That’s where I was to hear the Tim Fitzgerald Septet pay tribute and perform the music from Wes Montgomery’s appearance in the 1960’s on the BBC-TV show Jazz 625. The band consisted of some of the best jazz musicians around. I captured Christian as he soloed. Not satisfied with a straight photograph, I applied a variety of techniques to achieve this final image.
