Countdown to Monterey Jazz: T-Minus 10 Days

BOBBY HUTCHERSON1-BW-WEB

As the countdown to the 58th Annual Monterey Jazz Festival continues, here’s jazz vibes master Bobby Hutcherson, MJF, 2013.

The little-known backstory to this image is that just before I hit the shutter release, Mr. Hutcherson had been having a little conversation with Angela Davis, who was seated in the front row at the MJF Nightclub. His expression in this photograph was sort of what I would describe as an exclamation point to the tune he was playing in recognition of the political activist’s presence.
