The Thing
Mats Gustafsson Blows real hard in performance Thursday night at Poncho Performance Hall in the last of the April Earshot Jazz Spring Series Jazz which started out so long ago on February 25th with Bill Frisell and Russell Malone.


The Thing– Norway’s most ferocious and refined improvisers are Gustafsson – reeds – Ingebrigt Haker Flaten – bass – Paal Nilssen-Love – drums.
What an amazing concert. It was so refreshing to see and hear them play. An incredible amount of energy was expended up on that stage. The photographs in these pages are by  Seattle photographer Daniel Sheehan, a photojournalist who also does Seattle wedding photography creating award winning wedding photojournalism . As a photographer with a rather new digital camera, I am beginning to experiment with the HD video capabilities of my Canon 5D Mark II and recorded some of this concert. 

Look forward to seeing some of it embedded into an upcoming blog. There is a small matter of editing the footage and getting it hosted and embedded here. It is stuff that may be old hat to some but is new to me. Just keep a look out for it. Seattle photographers in general may be ahead of the curve in this department.

    Beautiful pictures of the Thing concert. I wanted to point out that you spelled Mats last name wrong.It’s Mats Gustafsson not Gustasson.
    Thanks for sharing your photos!

    Thanks for that, I picked up his name from Earshot Jazz and they had spelled it that way on the program I saw.

    I really like your pictures, great job. Is there any way to see more of them?

    I will continue to post more photos up here every day. I have a lot of them that have never been seen. I have contact a web designer to produce a website of my Jazz Photography called EyeShot Jazz but it is still under constructio and I have no idea when it will be completed. When it is I will announce it here and add a link back to it.
    Thank you for your interest in my photography.
