Simon Mulligan Trio

Last year, around this time, I had the opportunity to listen and photograph this amazing trio at the Jazz Cabaret upstairs from the Miller Symphony Hall in Allentown PA. Acclaimed pianist Simon Mulligan has played with everyone from The Royal Philharmonic to Sting. Mr. Mulligan returns to Allentown for an evening of standards, jazz classics, and original music from his CD “Playlist.” Joining Simon will be bassist Gene Perla, who has performed with Elvin Jones, Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone, Sonny Rollins, and other jazz luminaries. Rounding out the rhythm section will be my good friend, Dave Willard on drums. Expect to hear the Simon Mulligan Trio’s sophisticated take on your favorite timeless melodies and Simon’s own compositions. They will be playing again this Friday, February 19th at 7:30PM. For more info and tickets click here. The following are images from last year’s performance and were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1.

Jazz Cabaret – Hot Bijouxx

On Friday night, August 15th I was once again given the pleasure of capturing the evening through photography at the Jazz Upstairs. Hot Bijouxx performed an energetic mélange of Prohibition-era jazz, brilliantly combining story telling with the music. The 4 piece jazz band was complimented by the vocals of Najwa Parkins. Another great night of great jazz on the 3rd floor of Miller Symphony.

Jazz Cabaret – Eric Mintel Quartet

Last month’s Jazz Cabaret was another sellout. The Eric Mintel Quartet mastered the balance of the acoustics in Miller Symphony’s Hall’s Rodale Room on Friday July 18th. I had the pleasure of photographing the Quartet while they played songs from Coldplay, Sting, Aerosmith and others as well as many of their own originals. Their performance was enticing and audience engaging.

Goodwin played with his quartet at Miller Symphony Hall- Jazz Cabaret. The quartet performed selections from Goodwin’s new CD “Raise Four”.

Funk Xpress with Gene Perla

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of seeing Gene Perla with his newly formed group, Funk Xpress, play upstairs at the Miller Symphony Hall, Jazz Cabaret Series. The performance was highly energizing and extremely entertaining. The band consists of renowned talent that successfully captivated the audience with a variety of music choices. During the evening, there were hints of future Jazz Cabaret performances. Let’s keep our fingers crossed! For future Jazz Cabaret Series schedule and tickets, Click Here .

Simon Mulligan: Love Songs

A couple of weeks ago, Valentine’s Day to be exact, I photographed Simon Mulligan and company at the Jazz Cabaret upstairs at the Miller Symphony Hall. The company part consisted of Steven Liu, the Director El Sistema Youth Music Education Program and my very good friend, David Willard on drums. The trio created an evening of absolutely amazing music. You could hear and feel the passion of classically trained pianist, Simon Mulligan. I am already looking forward to his next performance.

Expansions: The Dave Liebman Group

A few weeks back I was again privileged to be the photographer for the Jazz Cabaret at Miller Symphony.  The group we enjoyed was led by Dave Liebman and was called Expansions – The Dave Liebman Group.  Liebman is a renowned jazz musician and has played with many of the masters including Miles Davis, Elvin Jones, Chick Corea and others and having been recorded in over 300 pieces. Liebman has also authored books and instructional DVDs which are acknowledged as classics in the jazz field.  Liebman has begun to introduce new younger generation musicians to his band, hence the name “The Expansions”.  These newcomers are being inspired and taught by Liebman.  The music we enjoyed ranged from classical, free and traditional jazz.

Jazz Cabaret – Lynnie Godfrey

A couple of weeks ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to hear and photograph a performer I had never seen perform before. Her name is Lynnie Godfrey and what a joy it was. Her voice took total command of the sold out crowd at the Jazz Cabaret at Miller Symphony Hall. If this woman doesn’t move you, you’re probably not breathing. When the opportunity presents itself again, this an absolute must see. For upcoming Jazz Cabaret Series and tickets Click Here.
