Tell us a little about your background...
I've been a jazz lover since childhood -- the sixties. I played tenor sax and flute for a few years in the 80's and then segued into the visual arts. I'm a photographer and filmmaker. I'm also a booking agent and publicist. I'm interested in collaborating with artists (concept, image), as well as producing hybrids with jazz as the foundation.

Divine: The Jazz Albums, 1954-1958 packs four CDs with Vaughan's music, recorded live or in the studio with bands big and small. Two live albums from Chicago nightclubs are standouts, partly when a performance threatens to slide off the rails.
