JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2009 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Celino & Barnes billboard- Rochester International Jazz Festival 2009

Terrel Stafford Quartet at Montage was really good. The were all really great players in fact. But we long not for the academic with the perfect tone but for the edge that reminds us we are alive. Like when Terrel sat out during their version of "Taking A Chance On Love". He leaned against the dark door to the right of the stage in this photo and the door flew open. Terrel almost fell into the light filled void. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
