Jazz At Other Local Venues

Kessel
Barney Kessel     June 1976.

This is one of the first photographs I took using my new method. It was taken at the Silverman Hall in Nelson during a daytime concert.

It was an honour to listen to someone who had played with Lester Young and Charlie Parker and who had accompanied Billie Holiday. I was glad I was not using flash because Barney Kessel had a particular attitude to flash and to tape recorders.
