Great Master Film Director Robert Altman in a group portrait with some of the best jazz musicians of our time on the set of his movie, 'Kansas City.' The Cannes Film Festival requested a portrait of Altman with the musicians. There is probably not an actor in the western film world who wouldn't want the honor of working with Altman. It was a wonderful education working with him. I also worked on the preproduction of this movie. He had originally planned to have me shoot a significant amount of still photos that would be used inside the movie, but he eventually decided to film in the conventional manner before filming started.
