Last December I took part in an interesting video shoot; 3 of Seattle’s leading jazz musicians jamming with upcoming blues and rap musicians. We had upwards of NINE cameras running and the shoot was a bit of a free-for-all, not unlike the improvised music. As a musician myself, I found the interaction between the old-school jazz masters and the younger musicians to be quite interesting.

As a former musician, I enjoy producing videos that highlight music. In addition to the Fretboard Journal live music broadcasts, and Seattle Improv Jam video I helped shoot, here are a few that I have created for Seattle area musicians.
A recent video I shot and edited for Seattle band, The Fabulous Roof Shakers.

Every now and then I have the pleasure of shooting live broadcasts for the Fretboard Journal Magazine‘s website. Although the broadcasts are produced under less than ideal conditions (tiny room, minimal audio support, available lighting), I thoroughly enjoy being in the presence of so many world class musicians.
