Portrait of Danilo Perez by Mike Rogers

There’s a few of my jazz music event photos: Herbie Hancock, Rhoda Scott, Lou Donaldson, Nick Payton, Jackie McClean, Gerald Wilson big band, Nancy Wilson mixed in with other photo genres.
Ed–thanks man. Nicholas Payton played with John Ellis on an album recorded in New Orleans that I helped John get put out on Joel Dorn’s Hyena Records. I’d love to run a little gallery of your shots here in Plastic Alto...
Danilo Perez is a special act for me because in Fall, 2000, 21 years ago, his Motherland quartet played in my Cubberley Series, with Donny McCaslin, Adam Cruz, Luciana Souza, Essiet Essiet. The band all went to a movie together the night before. Danilo and Luciana and I went to KSCM to talk to Chris Cortez on air. Danilo did an amazing clinic for 8th graders at a Redwood City charter school, via Orlene Chartain of Music for Minors; and when Chris Cuevas and Jerry Hannan and I went to Chicago for a road show, I caught the same combo, plus Robin Tomchin their manager, at Segal’s Jazz Showcase. 

the lovely Orlene Chartain:
