Santo Grasso Jazz Photos

Last Sunday, I took my 1920s - 1930s Jazz Deco band to Sydney Rowing Club, overlooking the Parramatta River to play an afternoon of music, fun and dancing.

And there was lots of dancing and lots of fun. It's an inspiration to play to dancers. It's a joy to play to such a warm and appreciative audience.

SANTO GRASSO JAZZ PHOTOS What a wonderful surprise then, just before downbeat on the first set, to see my favourite photographer, Santo Grasso. He'd come along to take photos of the band.

Now he's generously sharing them with us here.

Please check out Santo's wonderfully evocative photos of Sydney on his instagram page. Start following him! https://www.instagram.com/explore__sydney/
