Summer Evening Jazz

For years, I’ve been meaning to get along to the Ingatestone Jazz Concert which is held in the grounds of the Elizabethen Ingatestone Hall in Essex. This year, I finally managed it, after being invited along to take some photos for the local Rotary Club.

It was a lovely summer evening, and I wanted to capture some of the atmosphere of the open air picnics as the audience listened to the music. Plus I got some nice portraits of the musicians in mid-flow.

[Jazz On The Lawn – a table set for a picnic in front of the stage]

[Summer Evening Jazz – the band play from their tent on stage]

[Me & My Trombone – one of the band concentrates hard on his trombone solo]

[Me & My Clarinet – this jazzer was blowing his “liquorice stick” for all he was worth]

[Me & My Trumpet – The trumpeter was concentrating on his solo]

Thanks to Lord Petre for hosting this great event in the grounds of his lovely home.
