I photographed Nick just down the street from the Skylark a couple weeks ago, shortly before he played a gig there. This is for an ongoing personal project I’m working on, shooting improv musicians. He’ll be playing tomorrow night at the Hideout with Frank Rosaly’s Green and Gold.
I have some touristy photographs from a trip I took last month to Los Angeles. For my fellow Chicagoans, enjoy the weather porn!
360 degree view of the Venice Beach boardwalk. Hey, in the light gray sweatshirt–is that Chicago-expat-current-Venice-resident Hayley Murphy? Hard to tell from this far away…
By rope, this badass drags his baby grand piano to the boardwalk every day.
I hadn’t been to the Venice Canals before; a very lovely site for a nocturnal stroll. For you “hate America first” folks, just try finding something like this in a foreign country. Why don’t you try the “Old Europe?” I didn’t think so. (Photos by Jim Newberry)
