Focus on New Orleans 2010 & 2016 Part 2


Changes in New Orleans: Jazz&Jazz photographer Laurence Cumming visited New Orleans in May this year and captured a series of magical photographs which inspired me to revisit the photos I took six years ago during the 2010 French Quarter Festival.

Part 1 of “Focus on New Orleans 2010 & 2016” was published on Jazz&Jazz in July this year. 

Here is the continuation of our “Then and Now” New Orleans Photo Story.

I first met Leroy Jones at Donna’s Bar back in 2010 shortly before it’s closure. One of the photos I took on that memorable night later became the reference for my portrait of him, with a touch of artistic license of course.

Laurence goes for close ups, ideal for capturing “Street Shots”. Heads, shoulders and instruments. Many of the photos below are of musicians from “recently emerged”
New Orleans Bands. Some of them I know – some are members of my
Facebook “Jazzers Group”.
But it would be interesting to see how many of them readers can identify.
You can answer this in the “Comments” Section at the foot of the post.

    Love it, love it, love it! I see several folks that I’ve played with….

    Some of the ‘old’ favourites are recogniseable, but there are quite a few younger musicians not well known yet. I remember well our jazz brunches at the Hotel Intercontinental, and, of course, there’s Greg Stafford (Tpt) and Dr Michael White (Clt). Do not know the band at the Louisiana Music Factory, but there’s our own Brian Carrick on reeds sitting in. Shaye Cohn (Tuba Skinny) is there, also, the husband and wife leads (Tpt and Bjo) from the Shot Gun JB (would have to look their names up) Norm888
