Russ’s pic of the week: 23-11-09

Each week photographer Russ Escritt sends me his favourite picture of the week, or perhaps one from his extensive archive. Here’s one from the archive with a current relevance. It’s Paul Dunmall at the opening night of Tony Levin’s TL’s Jazz Club in Moseley, Birmingham, on 30-01-06. Paul will be playing on Saturday at the CBSO Centre in Birmingham as part of the Profound Sound Trio alongside US free jazz veterans Andrew Cyrille and Henry Grimes. He’ll be sticking to tenor saxophone this time, I guess, and leaving the pipes at home. Ah well, you can’t have everything.

Russ has been shooting (in the nicest possible way) local and visiting jazz musicians for a good few years now. In fact, he has recently compiled a book of the ones he likes best. Here is the cover:

  1. Thank you for posting this.

    Paul Dunmall is one of my favourite musicians and I feel this picture captures his spirit (whatever that is) brilliantly. I’ll be sure to add Escritt’s book to my wish list.
