A Great Day in Harlem


It's probably the most well-known photo in jazz history and, naturally, there's a story behind it - a few stories in fact. In Don de Barros' biography of Marian McPartland Shall We Play That One Together? Marian  explains the absence of her husband Jimmy.
The photo shoot was at 10am and Jimmy said "That's too ******* early" and turned over and went back to sleep!
There was also a film, part one of which can be seen here.
Thanks to Bill Gallon for drawing this to my attention.
Lance.
