Photographer David Welton maneuvers under the radar with his camera, catching the folks of Whidbey Island doing what they do best. Here he angles his lens on the gents of the Maxwelton Beach Club Quintet who play a regular gig at the Bayview Farmers Market. The qunitet includes Kirk Prindle, piano, Phil Lanahan, sax, John Barney, trombone, Jim Nevermann, drums, and Kirk Prindle, III, who plays bass and lends his mellifluous vocals to the band.
The jazz band has been together for seven years now, playing a variety of styles, including “cool,” Latin, the blues and the Great American Standards. You’ll find them having a ball improvising through songs like “Gone with the Wind,” “Tangerine,” “All Things You Are,” “Caravan,” and “Desafinado.”
Look for the Maxwelton Beach Club Quintet at the market at Bayview Corner again from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5. Here’s the shots from Welton:
