IAJE 2006
Photos of Maria at the International Association for Jazz Educators conference in New York, January 11-14, 2006.
David Baker Gallery
These are some wonderful images of David Baker taken during our recording session at Avatar early in March of 2004 and during mixing soon thereafter up in Vermont at The Barn. When I look at the images, I feel like he's here. I can hear his voice and almost recall the comments he was making. I hope the many musicians who have recorded with David over the years will enjoy these photos, as well as the numerous people who have heard his music, but never had the chance to see the man behind all that great sound he's captured on record over the decades. David will be greatly missed.
IAJE 2004 Performance
These photos by David Korchin are some of the best perfomance photos I've ever had taken. I hope you'll enjoy the show.
Toots Thielemans/Ivan Lins/Maria Schneider/Danish Radio Big Band Tour 2003
We did concerts from the north of Sweden to the South of Spain and had a fabulous time. What beautiful songs Ivan writes! Here are some photos I took on the trip of all the amazing musicians.
2004 North Sea Jazz Festival
The Danish Radio Big Band, Toots Thielemans, Ivan Lins and I did one concert in Europe this summer at the North Sea Jazz Festival. These photos were sent to me by photographer, Jos Fielmich. We had a ball, and I so wish there had been more.
Lima, Peru and Hiking Machu Picchu
Here are some photos from working in Lima, Peru after which I hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu (a four day hike). Some of these photos are courtesy of Jon Wikan. Musicians in Lima include Jon Wikan (cajon), Ingrid Jensen (trumpet), John Thomas (trumpet), Geoff Keezer, Huevito (dancing & cajon) and Hugo Alcazar (cajon) and many others. Hugo and Huevito both played with us at the IAJE convention last January (2006) as well. The Lando rhythm that I heard in Peru for the first time will show up on the new recording as "Aires de Lando." The Machu Picchu hike was grueling, but also the most spectacular place I've ever seen in my life -- even more so when you work so hard to get there!
