“Marshall’s photographs do not merely capture a momentous era in our collective history: they demonstrate what needs to be done, and what can be done, to ensure freedom for ourselves and those who follow us. As the sticker on the guitar case says: ‘Peace is the only shelter.” – Peter Doggett
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Archive, collects some 600 of Marshall’s black and white images made between 1960 and 1966, most of them previously unpublished.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.
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" ).
