Russ Escritt has been looking through his immense back catalogue of photographs and decided to make the original colour version of this pic black and white, and also to crop it. The differences may be subtle but make for a more powerful image.
It’s William Parker, from a gig he did with Charles Gayle and Mark Sanders at the mac back in September 2007, and Russ was thinking about Parker because he’s been enjoying two discs he has just bought. Read all about it here and view all Russ’s other pics on the same site.
Russ also has a new book of his photographs available to buy. It’s called A Jazz Year In Birmingham and covers September 2009 to August this year. Get a preview of this and also of his previous collections here.
