The Guardian: Jazz was the catalyst for change': Jim Marshall’s images of 60s festivals
by Sean O'Hagan
“Jim was a guy you either loved or hated, there was no in-between,” says Amelia Davis, Jim Marshall’s erstwhile assistant and now archivist. “If he loved you, he would lie down in front of a truck for you. If he hated you, he would happily drive the truck over you.”
A free street exhibit of twenty-four photographs from Jim Marshall's new book, "Jazz Festival," in the windows of the vacant San Francisco Unified School District building, opposite the SF Jazz Center.
The images include those of Tony Williams, Joe Henderson, Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis, Mary Lou Williams, Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, and Charles Lloyd.
This installation is the result of a partnership of the estate of Jim Marshall with the SJ Jazz Center and Reel Art Press (the publisher of "Jazz Festival" ).
