Matisse

Jazz, born in New Orleans in the 1890s, came from improvising the Blues, marching band music and Ragtime together.

Showcased are the Golden Age of Jazz series by photographer William Gottlieb (1917 – 2006) who is known for his sensitive, dignified depictions of jazz greats. Gottlieb developed an interest in Jazz music while listening to a friend’s records while recovering from a spell of food poisoning. Gottlieb documented Jazz’s Golden Era for numerous publications, including the Washington Post and Downbeat. For 10 years he took more than 1,600 photos of jazz legends, including Billie Holliday, Ella Fitzgerald, Benny Goodman and Louis Armstrong.

“Good jazz is when the leader jumps on the piano, waves his arms, and yells. Fine jazz is when a tenorman lifts his foot in the air. Great jazz is when he heaves a piercing note for 32 bars and collapses on his hands and knees. A pure genius of jazz is manifested when he and the rest of the orchestra runaround the room while the rhythm section grimaces and dances around their instruments.” Charles Mingus
