This is undeniably a one of the most significant group portraits ever to be taken marking a milestone in the history of Jazz, one of America's greatest inventions of innovation and creativity. On a warm August morning in 1958, avid jazz-enthusiast and photographer Art Kane
(April 9, 1925 – February 3, 1995) gathered 57 jazz musicians (without cell phones, Facebook, email, Twitter, etc.) in Harlem, New York for a one-of-a-kind group portrait consisting of some of the most influential figures in Jazz, including Art Blakey, Count Basie, Lester Young, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Sonny Rollins, Mary Lou Williams, and Marian McPartland.

His art ranges from the simplistic to the spectacular, and his peculiar view of the world is captured in this fascinating LIFE magazine series
of 1949, "Pablo Picasso Draws with Light."
