James Blood Ulmer & Memphis Blood @ Jazz Standard

Just getting around to these James Blood Ulmer photos from his typical “bring-the-house-down” bash with the Memphis Blood Blues Band featuring Vernon Reid at Jazz Standard (March 24-27). I think you’ll agree that, aside from sonically of course, they’re a very visually interesting band as well . . . loved Charlie Burnham’s expressions (violinist) and Vernon’s incredibly complex bed of foot pedals. The image grittiness caused by low-light in the club, in this instance,  worked to enhance the raw and gritty mood and feel of the band.
