A Great Day in Harlem, the iconic photograph by Art Kane, was taken on this day in 1958 — 65 years ago. The black and white group portrait of 57 notable jazz musicians was photographed in front of a Brownstone in Harlem, New York City. The photo has remained an important object in the study of the history of jazz.
I remember the Anderson Fair, getting to bet on the mouse in the roulette wheel. Saw Dolly first time in Cherokee, used to sing Love is Like a Butterfly with the TV, New Harvest one of my first 8 tracks. Thanks for the memory! Great job preserving Mr. Norman’s work. Loved the video of This Old World. Resonates today.
