There's not much that makes me happier than watching and photographing live jazz performed by amazing musicians who clearly love what they do!

Emily Asher and her Garden Party (and friends!) helped Radegast Hall and Beer Garden in Williamsburg celebrate their 5th Anniversary! And we celebrated Bria Skonberg's birthday too!

On the bandstand - Emily Asher (trombone), Sean Cronin (bass), Nick Russo (guitar), Jay Lepley (drums), Adrian Cunningham (sax), Bria Skonberg (trumpet), Michael Davis (trumpet), Anat Cohen (clarinet), Sarah Slonim (melodica), Jumaane Smith (trumpet) and Wycliffe Gordon (trombone)
