The CCJS 2012-13 concert season will have a visual bonus for attendees. Each concert will also spotlight select works from photographer Ken Franckling’s jazz photography archive. Franckling is a veteran arts writer and freelance photographer who specializes in music photography and occasional portraiture. This is the 30th anniversary of his work in the visual jazz scene. His Jazz in the Key of Light archive includes images of more than 3,000 musicians.

Franckling, who moved to the area last fall from Rhode Island, covered jazz and wrote a regular column, The Jazz Condition, for United Press International for more than 20 years. He is a contributing writer/photographer for Jazz Times, Jazziz, Hot House, AllAboutJazz.com and other publications. In 2003, he was honored to accept the Jazz Journalists Association’s Lona Foote-Bob Parent Award as Jazz Photographer of the Year.

The first concert will be held October 8, 2012 at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County. Concert at 7:00 non-members $15
