bass player

I took this shot of a bass player for a local band at a festival near my home town. It was a decent shot in color, but I thought it was really suited to black and white. I would like your opinions on the black and white conversion as well as your suggestions on what would make it better, both as far as the editing and the actual photography.

I like the B&W conversion; the tones seem OK to me. My only quibble with this photo is the way the man's throat is cut off. From where i'm sitting, including a bit more of the black T-shirt would have made it look even better and complement the black background.

Thank you for your input. I don't know why I did not include more of the shirt to be honest. I actually had to look back at the original to see if I had just cropped too close, but for some reason, that is the way I framed the shot.. I agree that it would improve the shot.
