What a great photo of trumpeter Tom Harrell. HH and I met photographer Lena Adasheva last month at the Jazz Standard, where we had gone to see Andy Bey sing. She was taking photos of Bey and generously shared some with me for future posting here (I haven't written my review yet but took detailed notes--it's forthcoming.) HH and I both loved her photo when we saw it on the Jazz Journalists Association website (and voted for it twice, once in the preliminary round and again in the finals).
Congratulations, Lena. You deserve this.
Tom Harrell, Moscow International Performance Arts Center (Moscow, Russia), December 26, 2009. (C) Lena Adasheva.
