Two Jazz Photography Exhibitions open up


This month sees two jazz photography exhibitions take place – one with the added bonus of some accompanying live performances and both coinciding with the EFG London Jazz Festival. The first is a joint exhibition from renowned specialist music photographers Alan John Ainsworth and John Watson whose 'The Jazz Moment' show runs from 10 to 23 November at the The Gallery, 77 Cowcross Street, Clerkenwell, London, EC1M.

The exhibition will feature 50 images of jazz legends (such as James Carter, pictured) and rising stars captured in full-flight, Watson commenting: "My aim is always to create striking images that capture the thrills of performance, and will interest viewers in great musicians and their work. Capturing 'the jazz moment' is a joy."

The second show, entitled 'The Jazz Gig' features the work of Jim Grover from 1 November to 3 December at the Omnibus Theatre, 1 Clapham Common Northside, London SW4. Showing 35 black and white images of many emerging jazz talents, two of which – acclaimed young guitarist Rob Luft and rising star bassist Misha Mullov-Abbado – with the latter bassist appearing as part of Australian singer/writer Kath Haling's group earlier this week on 12 November alongside pianist Liam Dunachie and drummer Will Glaser, and with Luft leading his own band on 19 November.
