Above and below are some amazing pictures of Syl from our friend & NYC based photographer Jacob Blickenstaff that he took in Brooklyn earlier this month.  Here’s what Jacob had to say about his time with Syl.

I had the opportunity to do a quick portrait with Syl Johnson when he was in NY to perform and promote his excellent and exhaustive new box-set on Numero Group, Syl Johnson: Complete Mythology. I met up with him and Michael Slaboch of Numero Group at a bar in Brooklyn where Syl was just finishing a video interview and a long day of press. He was a bit wiped out from all the attention but I managed one good frame of Syl wedged in a dark corner near the window on black and white film.  When he hit the stage that night for Dig Deeper at Southpaw, it was evident that he was saving his energy for the performance.
