After exhibitions in London, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Boston, 'Jim Marshall: Jazz Festival' can now be seen in at Stadthalle Gütersloh. The photography in the exhibition are from the illustrated book "Jim Marshall: Jazz Festival," and show Marshall's unique talent and lifelong quest for the perfect snapshot.
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.
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Archive, collects some 600 of Marshall’s black and white images made between 1960 and 1966, most of them previously unpublished.
