Composer Charles Eakin

I met Charles after his unique musical performance with friend, Chip who ‘hambones’ (an Appalachian body percussion) to Charles’ reading of the poetry of EE Cummings. Charles is a prolific jazz and classical composer and a former professor of music at the University of Colorado. Last week he was showing me around the old buildings in town which he felt decrepit and temporal much like himself (his words) so he asked me to photograph him in front of some of them as a memento mori.

And here is a link to an album of jazz compositions recorded in his home.
