Brownstones, Great Days, Harlem, Jazz & Musicians

"Liquid architecture. It's like jazz - you improvise, you work together, you play off each other, you make something, they make something. And I think it's a way of - for me, it's a way of trying to understand the city, and what might happen in the city,like this here monumental moment that happened in NYC back in 1958 which definitely had to be, "A Great Day in Harlem" when freelance photographer Art Kane took this photo of notable jazz musicians in front of a brownstone in Harlem for Esquire Magazine (Frank Gehry). 

I can imagine being there. Just looking at the image seems to have been an amazing wrinkle in time. Such a beautiful image. Such a legaic token of jazz culture.
