JO at August Wilson
AWAACC has adopted a nationally accepted standard that tightens up photography policy. That is cool and very understandable. The thing is that Jeffrey Osborne lit up the venue so quickly that all I really needed was to capture the first two songs. A consummate performer he is. L.T.D. and solo work flowed, and he paid touching tribute to his friend/producer George Duke. AWAACC CEO Janis Burley walked me back to meet Osborne after the performance. We talked about common acquaintances, he signed a vinyl jacket, and we agreed to a possible interview. Great guy. More pics to follow.

Lakecia Benjamin, New Hazlett 12/9
Sometimes there’s so much to attend :( It’s either We Want The Funk (part ii) at AWACC or Lakecia at Kente Arts Alliance. Since I saw WWTF (part i), I’ll head over to New Hazlett tonight for the New Jazz Goddess.
