New Orleans Jazz All Stars fund concert
I shot a fund raiser at Fitzgerald's jazz joint in Chicago back in November of 2005 for the New Orleans Musicians Relief Fund. This is not one of those huge ones. It is run by a husband and wife producer from NO and gets the funds to the musicains quick. The url is http://www.nomrf.org/index.html. These guys have lost everything! Many lived in the 9th parish.
It was a fabulous concert by local New Orleans musicans, not supplemented by any local Chicago guys.
Photo note: these are very lo-res posted pix. The originals were shot using a Canon XT at 1600asa with the kit lens or a Sigma f2.8 70 to 200mmm which is quite sharp. The images do not have any "noise."
