To All the Ships at Sea –
There are 2 questions I’ve been asked thousands of times. Am I related to Joe DiMaggio #5 The Yankee Clipper? The second question is do you ever work together with the great JoAnne Kalish on the same assignment? The answer is yes, we have on several occasions. When it comes to JoAnne and myself – I say black she says white. I say go she says stay. I say red she says green. It makes for a great relationship because we agree on almost everything! Not! Well, I don’t know about JoAnne but it keeps me on my toes. People think she’s a mild mannered laid back easy going woman. Not! She’s as tough as they come! Many a sports photographer who tried to muscle her out of a position found out that women have elbows too and their’s are a lot harder and sharper then men’s. I’ve seen one or two men actually go down! You shouldn’t push a 11o pound photographer around!
Where am I going with this? JoAnne and I have a wonderful friendship with one of the greatest Blues Musician in the World -also inductee to the Blues Hall of Fame. His name is Bobby Kyle. He’s a great writer, singer, guitarist, arranger and his music transcends Rock and Roll and Rhythm and Blues. Bobby’s got about 6 or 7 albums and his most recent album is drop dead fabulous! He just keeps getting better…If anyone is close to Monclair, New Jersey this coming Sunday November 5, 2017 he has two shows (I think 7 and 10pm) at Trumpets which is a great venue. He will be having a Release Party for his new album “IT’S MY LIFE.” I had the pleasure and privilege of photographing the cover which is a pretty good photo. JoAnne on the other hand got the photo that was used on the CD inside and I kind of like her’s better. I did notice something about Bobby which is that he always shows us his good side. Interesting…I don’t believe I ever photographed him from the other side! Could have something having to do with him looking into the frame rather than out of the frame. By the way, he has his own chapter in my book FILL THE FRAME. He will be at another venue in Philadelphia called the Twisted Tail (November 11) in about a week & you can check out his Facebook page for more information https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=bobby%20kyle%20%26%20the%20administers
