I'm in the photo pit! How cool is it to shoot along side Richard Conde??? Like the rock star of Jazz Photographers- he's a retired NYC Cop who found his true calling as a father and as an artist! Look him up, he's hard to top.
Seeing both of these music legends at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor was a total treat! Taj Mahal played first and then John Hiatt- just an amazing evening of true musicianship. Here's both of them at the last song of the night- the crowd rushed the stage and pretty much everybody sang along- so fun!
It was great to be able to see 2 music legends in one show package! Legendary Taj Mahal played first and courted us with his endearing song personality and dexterity of all instruments. From guitar to banjo to key board he kinda covered it all. The chat between songs was fun and the range of slow to downright fast and dirty playing was awesome.
