Jazz to Behold

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

Terrific photographs of some Jazz legends here.

“For two decades, Francis Wolff shot photographs of every jazz session that Blue Note Records made. He not only preserved a major part of jazz history, but with his remarkable eye, he captured amazing candid portraits of great artists that reveal the joy and intensity of jazz at the point of creation.”

This is a neat idea for a blog. Kids upload pics of the parents from back in the day. I don’t know exactly what it is about vintage photos, but I do get a kick out them.

At some point I’m going to spend a lot of time looking at this photograph.

It reminds me of a creative writing class. The assignment would be to come up with a story behind the picture. Good times.

I think the image is from this documentary.

When I look at images such as these, 10 stories pop into my head.

Smith Westerns

Although she writes only a few sentences per posting, her blog has a remarkably clear and distinct voice. Its minimal approach of ‘here it is and let it do its own thing’ puts me in the mindset of a Wes Anderson Movie.
