Photographs of the the 28th Glasgow Jazz Festival spanning the 27th, 28th and 29th June 2014.

A first for Inverness Gigs but not the last. The festival saw an impressive array of talent from the established artists such as Courtney Pine and the peerless Martin Taylor to rising new stars such as Zara MacFarlane. Fresh from her appearance on Later with Jools she really shone at the impressive subterranean Rio Club. But then, to be honest, there wasn’t a bad act to be had. Here our our photographs from the event;

Life-long engagement with music and a truly eclectic taste (although prog-rock and metal will usually have me scrambling for the off button). If pushed, I would have to say the Velvet Underground are one of the most important band’s of all time. Although I consider myself first and foremost a photographer, as regards reviewing I guess I cut my teeth in the vibrant fanzine scene of the 80’s. Around the same time I started taking photographs and, to be brief, performance and photography were made for each other: perfect match.
