Seattle’s Evan Flory-Barnes, an amazing bassist, and his Threat of Beauty had a great set  at the Twisted Cork Lounge at Hyatt Regency Bellevue as part of  the 2011 Bellevue Jazz Festival last Thursday. Also in the group is Jason Holt on drums and and Jacques Willis on Vibes. Here are a few images from their performance which I really enjoyed.

Danilo Perez – Jazz Photography

Photographing Danilo Perez in concert at ast weekend’s 2009 Bellevue Jazz Festival was a lot of fun. He was so unpredictable as he moved around a lot as he played the piano and sometime like here he played on the side of the piano. His music was serious but he made the performance feel fun. This just about wraps up my coverage of the 2009 Bellevue Jazz Festival. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
