Paul’s Big Sound
Canon 7D, 80mm, f/2, 1/100s, ISO 1250
Paul Robertson is big in every sense of the word: big frame, big sound, big groove. He combines a really powerful vibration with very fluid lines when he plays, a fantastic contribution to the Soul Rebels sound. This isn’t a fantastic shot, but it captures him in action, which I guess is good enough on some level.

The New Morning in Paris is a tricky club to shoot in. The light is harsh and there’s always something in the background. With the Soul Rebels it’s made even harder by the fact that most of them have one or two microphone stands in front of them. So I was quite pleased with this shot of Julian Gosin in his shades.

The Soul Rebels Brass Band hails from New Orleans and is undoubtedly one of the most raucous acts I have ever seen. Last Saturday I went to their gig at the New Morning in Paris, and despite this being the third time I see them, it was the most fun I’d had of all three gigs. As usual with the New Morning, photo conditions were rough, but I hope to have enough good shots of them to last the week.

It’s been way too long since I posted a concert shot, but the fact is it’s been way to long since I attended a concert… This was from the Soul Rebel Brass Band’s infectious gig in Paris La Défense last July.
