I've been at camp in New York with JUUUUUST enough internet to check email if the wind was blowing in from the East just right. I will be rolling into Florida late tomorrow & will update this blog like woah soon enough. :) Hope all is well!

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing...

Ahh, I love the sound of live jazz! It draws you in and makes your soul dance. It got the privilege to enjoy & photograph the Keene State jazz band reunion in Keene, NH. Man can they jam! Don Baldini conducts the jazz ensemble there and called the shots for most of the open jam session. A good time was certainly had by all! Can't wait til next year!
