Montreux Jazz Festival 2009
Posted By: tcom, 07-08-2009, 06:56 AM

This year's edition of the Montreux Jazz Festival opened last Friday.

The festival has two "programs", one paying program showing well known artists but where photography is not allowed, and a free program showing less known artists (at least to me), but allowing photography.

I tried to attend a few concerts and make a few shots. I will show here a severe selection of shots of the concert and add more photos as they come...

Very well exposed and composed, great job covering the event I'm looking forward to the Atlantic Jazz fest myself.

A terrific series, Dominique - I really dig the one of the cat with the big bari. I wish I could've been there - not much jazz here in SE Texas.

By golly - that went right over my head - love the shot of the Temple guy (bald head) on tenor, a Paris - very much like the one in my attic .

Again - great series. I dont' think you've ever posted pictures that weren't captivating - including your lens testing shots.

Dominique, that is a very nice series. I especilly like the three images of the Flat Earth Society. Brings back memories, in the second image that girls plays a 5 valve Tuba similar to what I played 50 years ago. :-)
