The Jazz Players.

By Tooma
I took these shots of some of the musicians from the Jerry Forde's New Phoenix Jazz Band at the Port Patrick Jazz Festival in 2017. The lads are mostly from the Edinburgh area.

To my mind and eye, musicians always make great subjects to shoot in action, even when they are between passages. It was a morning gig at the village hall, and I took all the shots in daylight, and they were hand-held - the image stabiliser had to work pretty hard, I reckon, and did a fine job. Smile

Thanks, Jenn. The music sure was good, and you gave me an idea. I used most of these shots in a slide show/video featuring one of the bands songs - see below.
