Mack Avenue Recording Artist Christian Sands at the Dirty Dog Cafe

Mack Avenue Recording Artist Christian Sands at the Dirty Dog Cafe

Sometimes you walk into a room and you get blown away. Last night at the Dirty Dog Jazz Cafe, one of my favorite places, I was able to witness a performance by the Christian Sands Trio that will be a part of me for the rest of my life. It was amazing. The trio, Christian Sands on piano, Yasushi Nakamara on bass, and Jerome Jennings on drums, was firing on all cylinders. Christian brings the full package to the stage: incredible musical talent, charisma, and a great stage presence. I’ve seen many great jazz artists live in my life – Miles Davis, Dexter Gordon, and many more – and I left the performance of Christian Sands with the same type of feeling inside. It is indescribable and it is special.

His new album, Reach, is now available on Mack Avenue records. Don’t pass up on a chance to see him live.

High School Senior Portraits Featuring Tennis Court and Downtown Detroit Locations

This October brought in cooler temperatures, fall colors, and the peak of senior portrait season. With Jack from Macomb Dakota High School, we were able to combine two of my favorite photo shoot styles: Downtown Detroit casual and sports (tennis).

Kyle Redies – Hartland High School (Livingston County) Senior Pictures – Detroit Photo Shoot

Kyle wanted a photo shoot in Detroit that featured historic buildings and classic backdrops. We traveled to Belle Isle and downtown Detroit. The Guardian Building, Buhl Building, and the Penobscot Building were some of our favorites. I can’t wait to get all of these processed and delivered to Kyle and his family.
