A Great Day In Harlem

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In honour of world photo day, the most iconic photograph taken back when Jazz was heard in every street corner in New York. Harlem 1958 was taken by Art Kane and featured in 1959 edition of Esquire magazine.
The streets of Harlem was plowed with 57 jazz musicians who were later joined by children at the front steps of 17E, 126th street. That would’ve been a day for me to see had my father not been a toddler in the African plains. There are only 2 surviving members of these musicians who continue being faithful to their instruments and I’m sure their sounds have evolved. Stay subscribed for an artist feature coming soon.
