Washington Wine Maker Tim Narby – Grape Harvest at Arianses Vineyard and Dineen Vineyard


I had a mission recently to accompany Tim Narby of Note Bene Winery  to drop bins at Ciel du Cheval and return with harvested grapes from Arianses Vineyard and Dineen Vineyard (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot from Arianses; Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from Dineen).  It was a great trip and wonderful to see where the grapes that go into his wonderful wine come from. It is some beautiful country over there in Eastern Washington State.

Phillip Glass In Solo Performance



The 2013 Earshot Jazz Festival presented Phillip Glass in a rare solo piano concert at the KIRKLAND PERFORMANCE CENTER an I was assigned to photograph him.
A cultural and artistic giant, Glass is an iconoclast of contemporary composition. He returned to Seattle for a rare solo piano performance. Through his operas, his symphonies, his compositions for his own ensemble and his wide-ranging collaborations with artists ranging from Twyla Tharp to Allen Ginsberg, Woody Allen to David Bowie, Glass has had an extraordinary and unprecedented impact upon the musical and intellectual life of his times. His operas play throughout the world’s leading houses; he has written music for experimental theater and for Academy Award-winning motion pictures, such as The Hours and Martin Scorsese’s Kundun; while Koyaanisqatsi, his initial filmic landscape with Godfrey Reggio and the Philip Glass Ensemble, may be the most radical and influential mating of sound and vision since Fantasia.

Big Ass Fans at The Bullitt Center


The Bullitt Center is the greenest commercial building in the world, planting Seattle in the forefront of the green building movement. The Bullitt Center is a commercial office building at the edge of the Central District, Seattle. It was officially opened on Earth Day, April 22, 2013, and was designed to be the greenest commercial building in the world when completed. It was built by the Bullitt Foundation, a non-profit group based in Seattle that focuses on environmental issues. The foundation is a tenant, occupying half of one floor in the six story building, with additional commercial tenants occupying the rest of the building.

One of the features of the building is the ceiling fans. they were provided by a Kentucky based corporation that goes by the name Big Ass Fans. Here is how they look in the interiors of the Bullitt Center.

Bill Frisell performed the music he composed for the film THE GREAT FLOOD by Bill Morrison at the Moore Theatre on March 2. Bill Morrison’s new film is about an event that happened 86 years ago. The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 was the most destructive river flood in the history of the United States. It inundated 27,000 square miles and displaced more than a million people and caused over $400 million in damages and killed 246 people in seven states.
Bill Frisell composed some quartet music for the film and was accompanied by trumpeter Ron Miles, bassist Tony Scherr and drummer Kenny Wollesen. It would be something not to miss if they ever do it again in Seattle.
