Can You Hear Me? A Tribute To San Diego Jazz Musicians During The Pandemic by Michelle Zousner
All About Jazz, August 28, 2021
[Photo by Michelle Zousner]

It's been an extraordinarily difficult year for the live music industry due to the pandemic. ... This project is to highlight local San Diego jazz musicians who thought outside the box to help our communities come out the other side of this crisis stronger, healthier, more connected and empathetic than ever. ... I wondered how these talented musicians were doing through this difficult time. ... I went on a photographic journey to tell the story of how they fared through the pandemic. I found a group of people demonstrating resiliency, creativity, and passion.
