Charleston Jazz Orchestra's Latin Night

Sometimes, my "job" leads me to the coolest places, and I have to pinch myself to make sure that I didn't just win a backstage pass, but am actually working!  Saturday night, I photographed the late set of Charleston Jazz Orchestra's "Latin Night", featuring Etienne Charles, at the Charleston Music Hall.  We are basically given the freedom to work every angle of the show, as long as we don't interfere with the experience of the participants.

Having shot this group and location for a number of years now, it is always challenging to come up with something new and creative, but I am pretty pleased with the shots that I came up with from this show.  If you haven't been to a CJO or JAC event yet, there are two more shows this season, and a 5th season has just been announced! It is a great time, and a bit off the beaten path, so check it out- http://jazzartistsofcharleston.org
