It’s Jazz Fest season and as usual Michael is heading down to capture the grit.

After covering the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival every year for over a decade, he has become quite immersed in the musical culture down there.

To get you in the mood for some Crawfish Monica, sunshine and cajun jazz, here are a few highlights from last October where Michael turned Preservation Hall and Tipitinas into portrait studios to capture these storied musicians in time.

Included in the mix here is James Andrews’ latest album cover, The Big Time Stuff, and portraiture of Chief Monk Boudreaux, Uncle Lionel Bapiste and Benny Jones from the Treme brass band and George Porter Jr., from the Meters.
