March 2014, Photo of the Month

Esquire Magazine, January 1959

Esquire's 1959 photo by Art Kane

In January 1959, Esquire Magazine published an all jazz issue.  In the magazine was an article on the golden age of jazz and this photograph taken by visionary art director Art Kane.  It is a classic photograph that captures four decades of 57 jazz musicians standing on a stoop in front of a brownstone in Harlem, New York.  In later years, Jean Bach created a documentary, "A Great Day in Harlem" released in 1994 about this jazzy day in Harlem, New York.
