    "A Great Day in Harlem"

    A Great Day In Harlem must be seen to be believed. An excellent website as well. And the film based on the photo is now available on Netflix for instant viewing.

  • Amazing photo, unbelievable how so many Jazz greats agreed to show up for the event. LOL at Monk purposely showing up late, wearing a white suit and glasses, and standing next to the two attractive women...all so he would stand out amongst the crowd. What really stands out about this picture (aside from Monk) is to see both blacks and whites together (in 1958, civil rights movement just getting started), brought together because of their music...really says a lot about Jazz. Finally got to see this documentary myself. Really interesting to hear from guys from the photo, and even one of the kids lucky enough to sit next to Basie.

    ...I like toitles!
