    Concert Videos & Events After archiving and triaging images from a concert, there are many images that I may not have chosen to be in my files, and I decided to use these remaining stills to create either a reflection of a concert performance, or create a performance that never happened at all! ​ Using an existing audio track, I would try to blend the visual and emotional moments of the stills to the sound tracks. ​ All Videos All Categories Play Video Play Video Mary Stallings @ The Kirk Douglas Theater 6/22/12 - Jazz Bakery Movable Feast Mary Stallings is one of the finest singers working the clubs and festivals today. Not only does she have a beautiful voice and great stage presence but she is a magnificent interpreter of lyrics. She tells each story with depth and clarity leaving her audience with an understanding of her music they didn't have when they came in. She was more than ably assisted by pianist David Udolf and bassist Ratzo Harris. From her first album with Cal Tjader through her work with Monty Alexander and Gene Harris she has been and continues to be a musical treasure for us all. These photographs are from her concert on 6/22/12 at the Kirk Douglas Theater in Culver City CA for Ruth Price and the Jazz Bakery Movable Feast. Bob Barry Play Video Play Video Earl Klugh @ Catalina The first time I saw Earl Klugh was at Carnegie Hall in Manhattan aroung the mid 80's. The Brecker Brothers opened for him and it was an amazing evening of great players and great music. 25 years later at Catalina Jazz Club in LA I saw him again. Except for the beard which is gone now, virtually nothing had changed and if it did it was for the better. He's not only an extraordinary player, but his musicianship shines in his unique and tasty arrangements. For this slide show I have chosen Earl's arrangement and performance of "Emily" from his CD, "Solo Guitar". Bob Barry Play Video Play Video Amanda McBroom sings her song "Best Friend" Amanda McBroom, songwriter, Actress, and NightClub and Cabaret Artist, has been called "...the greatest cabaret performer of her generation, an urban poet who writes like an angel and has a voice to match." Her name first came to the attention of the music public when Bette Midler's version of Amanda's song "THE ROSE", hit number one all over the world in 1979. But it was Amanda's performance of her own song on the Golden Globes (she won), Grammys (she didn't) and The Tonight Show that launched her career as a singer as well as songwriter. I had the great pleasure of photographing Amanda at her performance at Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood at the end of 2009. It was a brilliant performance and I had the opportunity to really spend time getting what I wanted. A rare occurence in the life of an archival art photographer. Using the images from that evening, I chose one of my favorites from Amanda's CD "Portraits" and using a new software from Germany called "Foto Magico", electonically and digitally sculpted this performance of her song, "Best Friend". I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it. Bob Barry Play Video Play Video Curtis Stigers @ The Kirk Douglas Theater The Jazz Bakery Movable Feast was proud to present Curtis Stigers and his quintet at the Kirk Douglas Theater on the 13th of January 2013. Whether it's a standard, a rarely heard tune from the American Song Book, or one of his own fine compositions, Curtis Stigers puts his own personal stamp on it and makes it his own. As he has done with this wonderful Randy Newman composition dating back to the 80's. This particular song features Curtis as a singer and is backed by piano and trumpet. He is also a fine saxophonist and guitarist. Thank you Ruth Price for bringing us such talented and unique artists. Bob Barry (c)2013 by Bob Barry Play Video Play Video The Chico Pinheiro Quintette @ Vibrato - "Mandarim" Vibrato - 4/7/2011 - There is a new and exciting generation of musicians coming out of South America these days, following in the footsteps of "Jobim", "Bonfa", "Cayymi" and Gilberto. One such young guitarist/composer is Chico Pinheiro. The "Chico Pinheiro Quintette" is made up of such great musical artists as Edu Ribeiro on drums, Fabio Torres on Piano, Paulo Paulelli on Bass and a wonderful singer, Luciana Alves, who is as lovely to look at as she is to listen too. I was fortunate enough to capture these images at their recent performance at Herb Alpert's, "Vibrato" in Bel Air CA. The song you are listening to is "Mandarim" By Chico & Paulo Pinheiro. Bob Barry Play Video Play Video Giacomo Gates @ The Kirk Douglas Theater On Saturday the 22nd of June at the Kirk Douglas Theater in Culver City I photographed jazz singer Giacomo Gates and the Joe LaBarbera Trio comprised of Joe on drums, Bruce Forman guitar and Tom Warrington on bass for the Jazz Bakery Movable Feast. Giacomo sang with his delightfully versatile baritone "American Songbook" standards and most interestingly "Jazz Standards" like "Night In Tunisia", "Round Midnight" and this tune called "Centerpiece". Giacomo was alternately hip, charming and funny throughout the evening. He was magnificently backed by Joe, Bruce, and Tom in what Giacomo pointed out was mostly improvised event. The sound track I used for this slide show was from Giacomo's CD "Centerpiece", featuring Vic Juris on guitar and Ray Drummond on bass. Thanks again Ruth Price and The Jazz Bakery Movable Feast for bringing artists like Giacomo Gates to our eyes and ears! BB Play Video Play Video Dori Caymmi @ The Kirk Douglas Theater - 6/23/12 - "Berimbau" On the 23rd of June 2012 Dori Caymmi performed for a packed house at the Kirk Douglas Theater in Culver City CA. One of Dori Caymmi's great gifts is to be able to communicate the intimacy and sensuality of his music so that if you didn't understand a word of Portuguese you would not be missing a thing. Once again a deep thanks to Ruth Price and the Jazz Bakery Movable Feast for bringing great artists like Dori Caymmi to share his musical gifts with us. Dori was ably supported by pianist Bill Cantos, bassist Jerry Watts and drummer-percussionist Michael Shapiro. BB Play Video Play Video The John Patitucci Trio at MI -Jazz Bakery On 5/26/12 At the Musicians Institute in Hollywood CA, Ruth Price and The Jazz Bakery Movable Feast presented the John Patitucci Trio comprised of John Patitucci on bass, Jon Cowherd on piano, and Adam Cruz on drums. Playing to a packed house they managed to leave no one disappointed. Another great concert in the tradition of Ruth Price and the Jazz Bakery. Bob Barry Play Video Play Video The Kurt Rosenwinkel Trio - Jazz Bakery Movable Feast 2/25/12 On the 25th of February 2012, The Jazz Bakery Movable Feast, an on going program of concerts using several different venues in Los Angeles presented the Kurt Rosenwinkel Trio at the Music Institute Theater in Hollywood. Guitarist/Composer Rosenwinkel was accompanied by bassist Ugonna Okegwo and drummer Justin Faulkner. Rosenwinkel, originally from Philidelphia now resides in Berlin Germany and is a prophesier of Jazz at the Hanns Eisler College or Academy of Music. Bob Barry Play Video Play Video Gretchen Parlato -Jazz Bakery Movable Feast 1/21/12 On January 21st of 2012 Ruth Price and The Jazz Bakery "Movable Feast" presented jazz vocalist Gretchen Parlato and her band at the Music Institute's Theater in Hollywood. Miss Parlato had just recently won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocal competition. Using her voice as a rhythmic and lyrical instrument she showed great skill with vocal improvisation and excelled with Brazilian style percussion instruments. She performed original as well as a number of jazz and Brazilian compositions with great command of the language and style. She was accompanied by her keyboard man Sam Harris, Bassist Harish Raghavan, and drummer mark Guiliana. They performed for an engaged and enthusiastic full house. Bob Barry Play Video Play Video Mike Lang @ Keyboard Concepts presented by The Jazz Bakery Movable Feast 4-22-12 Mike Lang is a "First Call" pianist in the world of studio musicians which keeps him busy much of the time. The downside for the rest of us is that we don't get to see him perform as much as we would like. Thanks to Ruth Price and her Jazz Bakery Movable Feast, we have been given a rare opportunity to see and hear this great artist in "The Flesh". On the 22nd of April 2012 Mike and bassist Michael Valerio filled the concert room at The Keyboard Concepts Showroom in Van Nuys CA. It was standing room for some and a standing ovation by all. Bob Barry Play Video Play Video Regina Carter's "Reverse Thread" @ The Nate Holden Performing Arts Center 4/14/12 Ruth Price and The Jazz Bakery Movable Feast took over the Nate Holden Performing Art Center for the night of the 14th of April 2012 bringing Regina Carter and her Quintet, "Reverse Thread" in to perform. Regina is an amazing jazz violinist who has surrounded herself with equally amazing musicians with the likes of Yacouba Sissoko playing an African instrument called a "Kora", Will Holshouser on accordion, Chris Lightcap playing bass and Alvester Garnett on drums.+percussion. It was a truly special musical evening. Bob Barry Load More
