Default Cool Jazz

On our trip to New Orleans last month, we went to the Spotted Cat. It was off the beaten path, but well worth the walk. This guy was one cool customer. His trombone was older than I am I think (and I'm 40). And the fact he played with his cigarette in his hand just made it seem more cool.

Definitely a very cool, jazzy shot. I'm not a fan of jazz (or blues), and generally neither a fan of B&W or selective colour - but imho - this shot WORKS VERY WELL!

Congrats!

The beard, hair, hand and 'lead in lines' of the trombone to the players facial area - all work for a powerful composition.

Also... thanks for sharing your age. As I've 'known' you on the forum for some time, I had an impression you might be mid 40's (at this stage) - so I wasn't far off. I'm 37!

PS... I feel sorry for poor trombone... played with 'cough cough' smokey breath!
