Beautiful Photograph du Jour
A GREAT DAY IN HARLEM
Freelance photographer Art Kane shot this marvelous and historic portrait of 57 jazz musicians on 126th Street between Fifth and Madison avenues in the summer of 1958.
I have looked at it for hours and can now pretty much identify most of the musicians, who include Basie, Gillespie, Golson, Hinton, Krupa, McPartland, Mingus, Monk, Mulligan, Rollins, Silver, Williams and Young.
My question is, how the heck did Kane get all these cats out of bed for a 10 a.m. shoot?
