Jaltive is a progressive jazz trio that just gets better every time I hear them. This was a fine concert and I loved working on the photos. I blogged about the change in style I’m using earlier today, so I won’t repeat myself here. The point is I’m shifting to let my photos tell more of the story – but it does mean looking a little closer.. Enjoy.

By the way, the two “urban Mayan” pieces: I love them and I wanted to be sure I didn’t start a war between the brothers because they are so cool (in my opinion anyway)! So – I have to have one for each! Take care bros!
