In celebration of this years annual Elkhart Jazz Festival, I wanted to share some images that I shot at Elkhart Jazz Festival of jazz legend Tony Monaco and the Tony Monaco Trio. I had been hired to document the performance of this historic night and I think the shots turned out great! It couldn't have been a better evening, perfect summer temperatures, the smell of food, and the smooth sounds of jazz. I also think the fact that the stage was built in the middle of Main Street made for some really interesting and dynamic shots.
