Pic du Jour – Saxophone Player, Cartagena

Saxophonist, Cartagena

I first noticed this man as he was sitting at a cafe with a few other musicians at the Plaza de Santo Domingo in Cartagena, Colombia’s old town center. When the chatting stopped, he took the silence as a prompt to pick up his sax, walk across the street and begin playing. His playing prompted me to order another drink, sit tight, and listen intently.

It further prompted me, just now, to seek out some Colombian jazz. I found Roberto Lopez Afro-Colombia Jazz Orchestra Enjoy.

Today’s Pic du Jour, the 264th straight, was snapped on 08-Jun-2013. Please click on the image to see the full uncropped version.
