When Photography Meets Jazz..

When first-class jazz vocalist Lauren Hooker of Teaneck wanted sophisticated photography for her latest album Life of the Music, she turned to our own David Derex. "David's experience as a glamour photographer really appealed to me", says Lauren. "I wanted a very New York look to this album and that's what David offered."

The renowned Rufus Reid, jazz bassist and composer (also of Teaneck!!) wrote in the liner notes: "Lauren’s voice is mature, rich, robust, and full of emotion that only experience can bring. She surrounds herself with seasoned world-class instrumentalists who make the collaboration spectacular'".
