Juan Pastor’s Chinchano @ Constellation

A couple weeks ago I was invited to photograph Juan Pastor’s Chinchano at Constellation debuting their 2nd album “Un Cambio”. Chinchano is an original music ensemble that fuses Peruvian folk rhythms with modern jazz. Here are some of my favorite moments I caught during their set. 

“The tunes feature continuously evolving structures and shimmering harmonies fueled by joyous Peruvian grooves not commonly encountered by Northern ears” -Downbeat Magazine 


This performance featured:

Juan Pastor - Percussion and Composition 

 Stu Mindeman - Piano and Composition 

 Rich Moore - Alto Saxophone 

 Victor Garcia - Trumpet 

 Matt Ulery - Bass 



Jazz Occurence 6 @ Constellation

 A couple weeks ago I was invited to photograph an event called Jazz Occurrence at Constellation as a select performance in the Chicago Artists’ Month. The 6th edition of this event featured the Vincent Davis Percussion Plus and a live painting performance by the event coordinator, Lewis Achenbach, accompanied by the Urban Sketchers of Chicago in the audience.

The next Jazz Occurrence is on October 24th at High Concept Laboratories featuring Volcano Radar.
