GM's MUSIC BOX/ KHUS, 90.5/ MON., 16 AUG. 2010

Photographer Herman Leonard is best known for his iconic images of jazz greats shot in New York jazz clubs in the late 1940's and 1950's. He died on Sat., August 14th. He was 87 years old. His work has endured, capturing legends such as Miles Davis, Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday and Dexter Gordon, in their smoke-filled after-hours environment. Pictured here is a young Dianne Carroll providing a light for Louis Armstrong as Duke Ellington looks on.
