Nature photographer and essayist Lorna Sass also has a keen ear for swinging jazz, and last night, October 16, 2009, she took her camera to Roth’s Westside (Columbus Avenue at 93rd Street on the Upper West Side of New York City) to capture some of the music — visually, that is.

Wonderful portrait studies, taken under less-than-ideal conditions (including low light, rapidly moving subjects, and that infernal chalkboard as background). Check out Lorna’s blog, www.lornasassatlarge.wordpress.com. for more intriguing art and nature photographs!
