Dave Brubeck - 1975 Schaffer Music Festival, Central Park, New York City - My assignment was to shoot Dave for a lead story in one of Jazz's biggest magazines. I was told to bring a very long lens, since the stage was 20 feet high and since they were not letting anyone on stage. Little did the publisher know that I was friends with the promoter and everyone in security for that venue. I was so tight with the people putting on the show that when I told them about the magazine assignment they introduced me directly to Dave Brubeck who gave me his OK to shoot where ever I pleased. The next day I handed in a print of this image and watched the expression on the publishers face when he pulled the print from the envelope.
