About the image
BB King playing guitar on stage during an outdoor concert performance at 'Jazz Up July' in Stamford, CT in July, 2014. After the encore, he raised a glass to the audience, thanking them. "It was like he was saying goodbye," Glen remembers. This was among BB King's last concerts before his short retirement due to illness. He passed away in May, 2015.

Having photographed BB King for many years beginning in the late 1960s, Glen instinctively knew of certain visual cues to respond to when capturing this performance. Glen recalls that BB King seemed to recognize this, and commented "Hey, this man is in sync with me!", speaking about Glen, during the show.

About this performance, Glen said, "For someone who was about to turn 90, he was pretty great faculty-wise, his memory was still good. He hugged me when he saw me....he still had it!"
