Photographer Vincenzo Cosenza writes:

This picture of Paolo Fresu was taken last year during the Peperoncino Jazz Festival, an annual event in the South of Italy that mixes music and local food tasting. Paolo is one of the most important Italian trumpet/flugelhorn players -- certainly the most eclectic one, because he combines tradition and experimentation. His music is colourful and covers the whole range of emotions; that's why I've decided to picture him highlighting colors and contrasts (i.e. here and here). Fortunately for me he liked my pics!

Here's the original, and a link to Vincenzo Cosenza's website and Flickr photostream. And feel free to contribute your jazz shots to the NPR Jazz Flickr group.
