LoveMore Movement

Time and time again, we hear the phrase “We need more love.” We do. It’s true. But the more I hear it and the more I engage with the world, the more I realize that that phrase is merely one of consumption. It implies that if we have more of it, things will be better. And while having more love will definitely improve the quality of your life, it won’t fix it. It occurred to me that what just might nurture some repair is if we as individuals or groups of people flipped that phrase and Loved More.

With that in mind, I began to look at the world a lot differently. I noticed the cashier in the store who smiled at everyone, regardless of whether or not they smiled back. I noticed the finance guy who was selling me my car get inspired by my Love More tattoos —…

Treats from Monterey!

This should ahve been posted a month ago, but you know, life happens.Needless to say, the Monterey Jazz Festival was a blast. Hanging out with Janice Littlejohn of …but can she play? was inspiring, creative, and full of adventure.

So, to best share what happened at Monterey Jazz Festival shall be told in in photographs. THere are many more, this is just a sampling. To see more of what I photographed, they are on my website and on my flickr stream.

First there was Roberto Fonseca, who literally blew my mind. I don’t think I have ever been brought to tears from shooting an image.


Then there was the Berklee Global Jazz Ensemble featuring Joe Lovano.


Carmen Lundy was out of this world!!!! WOW



The opportunity to photograph Buena Vista Social Club arose, and well, this happened. Let me tell you, dancing and shooting is a difficult feat, so I danced on the inside.














The mission here was to highlight women horn players in jazz. They are not always in the fore, but I swear, Janice can find them anywhere.  We were waitiing to photograph Claire Daly (our main reason for traveling to Monterey) and Janice discovered Hanne playing with this incredible high-school jazz ensemble. She inspired color.

















Claire Daly is simply divine. For one thing, she blows a baritone sax. If you’ve never heard this instrument, you need to. Now. Her CD is a dedication the none other than Thelonious Monk; it’s called Baritone Monk. Just…wow. 100% of the proceeds are donated to the Monk Institute to further jazz education!!!














And Janice, well, the woman does it all. She is a magnificent, prolific journalist, professor, documentarian, and oh, let’s just add videographer to the mix. She’s a badass to the nth degree.
