New Jazz Legends Inducted into Walls of Fame at the Miramar Cultural Center | ArtsPark

MIRAMAR – The Miramar Cultural Center | ArtsPark and The Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale, Nova Southeastern University has added new photos to the year-long exhibition All that Jazz: Photographs of Jazz Legends, which is on display in the Ansin Family Gallery at the Miramar Cultural Center through May. The exhibit celebrates the greatest jazz musicians of the 20th century.

Photographs of Max Roach, Ray Brown, Milt Jackson, Timmie Rosenkrantz and Earl Hines join images of jazz icons Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Quincy Jones in the exhibit which includes work by William Gottlieb, Herman Leonard and Jerry Stoll, some of the genre’s best known photographers.

Gottlieb’s work can also be found in the Library of Congress and has appeared in newspapers, television documentaries, magazines, museums and on more than 250 CD covers. Called “the greatest jazz photographer in the history of the genre” by President Bill Clinton, Leonard’s photographs are a unique record of the jazz scene of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s with 155 original prints on display in the Smithsonian Museum’s permanent collection. Stoll gained fame in the San Francisco Bay Area for his work as the resident photographer for the Monterey Jazz Festival from 1958 through the mid- ‘60s.

The photos on display are donated from the Library of Congress and Miami resident and long time art gallery owner Barbara Gillman.
