Greetings, pilgrims!

Marcus-Miller-Royal-Festival--EFG-London-Jazz-Festival-2013-Akin-5787

Apart from seeing Bob James and David Sanborn during the London Jazz festival, the one musician I’d been looking forward to seeing live is Marcus Miller.  It is always a pleasure to photograph him and get to hear his compositions. Unlike four years ago when we could photograph the soundcheck and main gig, this time we had restrictions of only shooting the first two songs from the stalls, but who am I to complain? I get to listen to Marcus Miller and get to take his picture with his band.

Speaking of his band, mark my words: you’ll be hearing much more each of them in years to come in their own professional right:

Robert Sput Searight on drums.

My one regret, though, was not being able to get a decent shot of the amazing guitarist, Adam Agati.  Maybe next time.

As for Mr Miller, I salute you!
