    Great idea. Would love to see a brief bio on each of these talented musicians, to help raise awareness.

  3. Truely inspirational to all students of jazz.

  4. William Nikkel says:

    What a tribute and masterful job of organizing. Noting with regret the absence of one contemporary keyboard giant, Lynne Arriale.

  5. Cindy Quigley says:

    Where can I purchase a copy of this lovely photograph?

  6. Mike McClafferty says:

    Yay, Marian McPartland. She was in the Art Kane original in 1958, and here we see her again, 50 years later. Gone now, but fondly remember. R.I.P.

  7. Steve Colvin says:

    Any plans for an 8×10 of the Harlem 2008 picture?
