ART KANE - JAZZ PORTRAIT - HARLEM 1958

An all-time poster classic, for fans of Jazz music, African-American history, and amazing vintage black-and-white photography! Legendary New York photographer Art Kane put out the call one August morning for all of the area's professional Jazz musicians to assemble on the steps of a traditional Harlem brownstone for a group shot. Not knowing exactly who would show up, Kane got the surprise of his life, and 57 of the best-of-the-best arrived on time to say "cheese"! As featured in the Steven Spielberg film The Terminal, and as chronicled in the 1995 documentary A Great Day in Harlem, here's the list of everyone appearing in the poster: Benny Golson, Art Farmer, Hilton Jefferson, Art Blakey, Chubby Jackson, Johnny Griffin, Dickie Wells, Buck Clayton, Taft Jordan, Zutty Singleton, Red Allen, Sonny Greer, Jimmy Jones, Tyree Glenn, Miff Mole, Jay 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, Mary Lou Williams, Emmett Berry, Thelonious Monk, Vic Dickenson, Milt Hinton, Lester Young, Rex Stewart, J.C. Heard, Gery Mulligan, Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillespie, Count Basie. From the amazing architecture, to the classic fashion, to the mind-blowing array of talent, to the row of young wanna-be stars sitting on the curb in the foreground, it's all here, looking great for your wall! An iconic American classic; perfect for home, office, or studio.
