Beautiful Listeners of Jazz

Soulfulness or heart does not only refer to the playing of music.  It is also important in the listener.   When those of us on the bandstand would notice someone in the audience listening from that deep place, we would tell each other that “someone is here with ears.”

Here is a short clip from an evening in Osaka.  Some of the still photos of young people engaged in soulful listening were taken by Nikolas Konstantin, a truly soulful photographer.  The tune in the background is In a Sentimental Mood by Duke Ellington.

Enjoy these beautiful faces.
