This is Kim Waters, a very famous Jazz musician from Baltimore. I was fortunate to attend one of his shows in DC. He played at Blues Alley, a Jazz club known for its dark and romantic interior.
On this very day, I had just finished taking my test shots before I was told no picture taking allowed. I felt very terrible that I'd paid so much to be here but not allowed to take pics, it's like I had a weapon loaded with rounds and saw the enemy coming but told not to pull the trigger....oouch! Nevertheless, I enjoyed the show and the 85mm 1.2 lens really saved the day as per shooting under low ligthing conditions.
PS: I have intentionally not removed all the grains or noise in this shot to add some feel of the rugged interior of Blues Alley!
