A Great Day in Harlem A Great Day in Harlem or Harlem 1958 is a 1958 black and white group portrait of 57 notable jazz musicians photographed on a street in Harlem, New York City. The photo has remained an important object in the study of the history of jazz. Art Kane, a freelance photographer working for Esquire magazine, took the picture around 10 a.m. on August 12 in the summer of 1958. The musicians had gathered on 126th Street, between Fifth and Madison Avenues in Harlem. Esquire published the photo in its January 1959 issue. Kane calls it "the greatest picture of that era of musicians ever taken." Featured in the photograph (left to right, in rows starting at the back): Benny Golson, Art Farmer, Wilbur Ware, Hilton Jefferson, Art Blakey, Chubby Jackson, Johnny Griffin, Dicky Wells, Buck Clayton, Taft Jordan, Zutty Singleton, Red Allen, Sonny Greer, Jimmy Jones, Tyree Glenn, Miff Mole, J. C. Higginbotham, Charles Mingus, Jo Jones, Gene Krupa, Osie Johnson, Max Kaminsky, George Wettling, Bud Freeman, Pee Wee Russell, Buster Bailey, Scoville Browne, Bill Crump, Ernie Wilkins, Sahib Shihab, Sonny Rollins, Gigi Gryce, Hank Jones, Eddie Locke, Horace Silver, Luckey Roberts, Maxine Sullivan, Jimmy Rushing, Joe Thomas, Stuff Smith, Coleman Hawkins, Rudy Powell, Oscar Pettiford, Marian McPartland, Lawrence Brown, Marylou Williams, Emmet Berry, Theolonius Monk, Vic Dickinson, Milt Hinton, Lester Young, Rex Stewart, J. C. Heard, Gerry Mulligan, Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillespie, Count Basie. Jean Bach, a radio producer of New York, recounted the story behind it in her 1994 documentary film, A Great Day in Harlem. The film was nominated in 1995 for an Academy Award for Documentary Feature. As of December 28, 2011 only 4 of the musicians are still living. -wikipedia
Art Kane "Jazz Portrait" Harlem 1958 While on his 1st day of assignment for Esquire Magazine, Art was sent to Harlem to photograph these jazz greats. It was a chaotic day. As you can imagine trying to get everyone to look at the camera at the same time was probably much like herding cats. The neighborhood kids wouldn't stay off the stoop & out of the windows. Art eventually let them join. The result was an historic moment. That's Dizzy Gillespie sitting with the kids.

Sonny Rollins ... "The Bridge" ... In 1959, feeling pressured by the unexpected swiftness of his rise to fame, Rollins took a three-year hiatus to focus on perfecting his craft. A resident of the Lower East Side of Manhattan with no private space to practice, he took his saxophone up to the Williamsburg Bridge to practice alone: “I would be up there 15 or 16 hours at a time spring, summer, fall and winter”

Piano keys in the reflection of the glasses! HOLY COOOL! Thelonious Monk
© Herb Snitzer, 1959, Portrait of Thelonius Monk, New York This photograph was made at a United Nations meeting while Monk was playing to a very appreciative audience of Ambassadors and other distinguished persons. Out of respect to the United Nations, Monk took off his trademark hat. “I guess, you know, if I didn’t make it with the piano, I guess I would’ve been the biggest bum.” (Thelonious Monk) » find more photos of famous people here «

Unlike the vast majority of jazz musicians, Dave Brubeck was blessed with both talent and commercial success. His renowned 1950s quartet recorded standards like "Take Five," "The Duke," and "In Your Own Sweet Way." He was the first jazz artist to sell one million copies of an album, the second to appear on the cover of Time magazine. To this day, he sells out concert halls around the world.
Paul Desmond with the Dave Brubeck Quartet. Known as "the swinging introvert," Paul Desmond once described his sound as "like a dry martini." With his darkly lilting approach, Desmond rose to fame while soloing in the crook of Dave Brubeck's piano, teaming with the bandleader to help form one of the most heralded groups in jazz history. Desmond also penned one of the most successful jazz classics of all time, "Take Five."
Lionel Hampton (Born April 20, 1908) was an American jazz vibraphonist, pianist, percussionist, bandleader and actor. Like Red Norvo, he was one of the first jazz vibraphone players. Mr. Hampton ranks among the great names in jazz history, having worked with a who's who of jazz musicians, from Benny Goodman and Buddy Rich to Charlie Parker and Quincy Jones. In 1992, he was inducted into the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame.
