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

    • Thanks Marty,
      We are working on a timeline which we will post as soon as it’s available.
      Best Wishes, Judy

  2. A great photo in the style of Art Kane, but as a photographer myself, it’s a big omission not to include the name of the photographer on your website. Please let me know and PLEASE add his or her name as a credit.
    Regards
    Phil Portus

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

  4. 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.

  5. In addition to the “timeline” you are working on, it would be great if you could make the online version of the photo have the facility to place the mouse arrow over the face of a musician and have their name displayed – just like the original Art Kane photo.

  6. I just saw the movie on cable and it is one of the best historical movies I have ever seen. It’s truly amazing how talented women musicians, composers, arrangers are in jazz, but also so underrated! I want to get a copy of the photo of all the musicians in Harlem! I’d also like to do a feature of these women on my website.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!
