 WICN's Inquiry hosted by Mark Lynch features Amelia Davis, Jim Marshall's assistant for 13 years and owner of Jim Marshall Photography LLC, in an engaging interview about Jim and the acclaimed new photo journal of his work, Jazz Festival. Stunning images in black and white capture the jazz scenes at the '60s Newport and Monterey jazz festivals. Jim Marshall photographed all the jazz greats, including Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Wes Mongomery, Ben Webster, Nina Simone, Theolonious Monk and John Coltrane.

Quicksilver Messenger Service

Before he was a famous rock photographer, Jim Marshall photographed jazz, covering the festivals in Newport, Rhode Island and Monterey, California in the 1960s and photographing the biggest stars along with their deeply hip audience. Jazz Festival: Jim Marshall, published recently by Reel Art Press in collaboration with the Jim Marshall Archive, collects some 600 of Marshall’s black and white images made between 1960 and 1966, most of them previously unpublished.

Oh yeah - Reel Art Press does it again! The Estate of Jim Marshall is pleased to announce the launch of "Jim Marshall: Jazz Festival" (Reel Art Press, September, 2016). We lost a true hard-working character when Jim died, and we thank Amelia Davis for her dedication to keeping his work out there, and editing such a rich and fabulous book (and for letting me make an edit for this story! Thank you!) The book covers six years of Monterey and Newport Jazz Festivals, on stage and behind the scenes, and is chock-a-block with pics.

Paul Gonsalves and Duke Ellington-1961

The best photographs linger in the mind even after you shut your eyes. It's the same with great jazz songs, whose melodies seem to stay awhile, even after the last note sounds. In both, there's a sense of eternity, which is why the marriage of the two — as in the jazz images of photograper Jim Marshall can seem timeless.
