Jazz In Photos for 2014

Looking over my photos for the year 2014 brings back lots of great memories. I had all of my regular dates at Lightfoot Restaurant


And at Village Square. (This photo is from the previous year. I play there so much, I quite photographing the place.)


In December I played for Santa’s arrival at Chantilly National Golf Club.

Played for Santa and the kids today! Around here Santa rides a fire truck.

I played my first gig in an airplane hangar at the Air and Space Museum.

Saxophones and airplanes.

The quartet continued it’s tradition of yearly concerts at Westminster-Canterbury in Winchester. In the afternoon before the concert we take some music to the residents who can’t make it out in the evening.


Played one of the first events at the new Shadow Creek venue in Loudoun County.

Playing w/ a little big band tonight.

Was pleased to be one of the few jazz groups at the Half Note Lounge in Winchester. It’s the lounge in the George Washington Hotel. The entire place is jazz themed. It’s a tragedy that they host mostly folk and singer-songwriter stuff.

Jazz at the Half Note.

Had a fun little run at a new Cajun restaurant in Winchester.

Tonight with Lydia Lewis on drums and Kevin Johnson on bass.

I’m honored to be included in the milestone moments in people’s lives. Here’s a photo from a promotion party at the Army Navy Country Club.

First gig at the Army Navy Country Club. That's a nice place!

The Anderson House. One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever played. Looking forward to going back again this year. (Found a great little Afghan restaurant nearby too.)


Played solo piano for dinner at a wedding at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. Right in the middle of everything.


Gratuitous piano pic. This is the Steinway D at the studio I work for. Didn’t get to play this piano nearly enough. (I have to actually work when I’m at work.)


Played a cool duo gig with Joe Whitney on the balcony of the building nearest the US Capitol.

Tonight's gig on the balcony overlooking the Capitol.

And the National Postal Museum.


And I played lots of cocktail parties. Here’s just one to represent them all.

Cocktail party and I'm the only one who doesn't know Spanish. Guess I need to take some lessons from my daughter.
