More photos

I've been trawling through my photos again and picked out some that might be of interest. First, here's Margaret Lewis and Kenny Bill Stinson at Jazzfest. Maggie was the undoubted star of last year's 2Is show at the 100 Club. Also at Jazzfest here's the photogenic zydeco queen Rosie Ledet.
Soul singer Maxine Brown performed at the 100 Club in the early 90s. She also starred in the Kent Records soul spectacular at The Forum in 2007.
Percy Sledge may not be the most dynamic of performers but his voice is the personification of country soul. Here he is at the Jazz Cafe.
I saw Bo Diddley many times during his illustrious career including some of his UK shows in the early 60s. Here he is at the House of Blues in New Orleans in 2000.
Next, three photos from the Blues Estafette in Utrecht in 1997. This is soul/blues man Frankie Lee.
And here's Hi recording artist Syl Johnson.
This is soul man Willie Clayton.
Finally, a couple of photos from the Porretta Soul Festival. This is Graziano, the man who makes this great festival possible, with Isaac Hayes.
The festival is dedicated to Otis Redding but came to prominence largely as a result of early appearances by Rufus Thomas, who had the arena there named after him.Here's Rufus enjoying one of the acts in 1997..
