Sometimes this business can take you to some very cool places to meet some very cool people. On this occasion we were shooting Tony Koch’s newly assembled jazz ensemble, the AltNews Band. The location, Bryan Adam’s famed Warehouse recording studio in Vancouver’s Gastown. While they recorded we captured images for their CD release.
Tony Koch: Writer, composer and lead guitar. A long time instructor at Vancouver Community College, Tony assembled this A list of Jazz musicians.
Campbell Ryga: A juno award winning jazz alto and soprano saxophonist. Cam has worked with Vancouver golden boy Michael Buble and got a grammy nod out of it.
Miles Black: Composer, arranger, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. Miles is also one of the most sought after jazz pianists in the country.
Miles Hill: Bassist, producer, engineer, and composer, this guy does it all. He also recently opened up his own shop called Frequency Forward Studio.
