One summer day in 1958 a young photographer took a picture of dozens of America’s jazz legends all gathered in one place. This famous photograph became known as A Great Day in Harlem.

Join Stu Johnson, Royal Oak resident and frequent speaker, on Thursday, February 27 at 7:00 pm as he takes us back to that fateful day with the back story, photos, and of course, great music.

Slides and recordings punctuate this presentation, often featuring some of the lesser known musicians. Musicians profiled include Theloneous Monk, Hank Jones, Dizzy Gillespie, and Coleman Hawkins, Jimmy Rushing, Hilton Jefferson and Marian McPartland. Learn the events surrounding the taking of this famous photo of 57 jazz greats in the summer of 1958.
