Benny Golson, saxophonist and composer

Larry Appelbaum, Music Division

A handsome new art book marks the 60th anniversary of Art Kane’s iconic photograph, a glimpse of jazz history documenting a now-legendary gathering of 57 jazz artists on the steps of a Harlem brownstone. Larry Appelbaum talks with the photographer’s son, Jonathan Kane, and saxophonist and composer Benny Golson, one of two living musicians captured in this eloquent image.

 “Not only is this photo important to the people in it, but it should be a reminder of where we need to be: together” (Quincy Jones).

Presented through the generous support of the Revada Foundation of the Logan Family
