You may remember my photos of the Interval Trio at Ava in East Liberty back in May. One of the musicians that night was bass player Tony DePaolis, who has been working night and day over the past several months on his first CD, The Contemporary Dynamic. As Totny needed some photos for his CD and promotional materials, we met in the Strip District to capture some portraits.

A big, big thanks again to Randi Voss for joining me on this shoot, and providing fun, upbeat energy and motivation despite her cold and jet lag. This is one of my favorites of her images:

Tony: congratulations on your CD – I’m very much looking forward to its release!
