Jazz for Obama 2012

Last night at the Symphony Space many j.azz greats got together in support of President Obama.  The pianist Aaron Goldberg has been organizing jazz benefit concerts for every presidential election since 2004 to raise money for the Democratic side.  It was an honor being there shooting the concert and behind the scenes.
