Do you see Sonny with the sunglasses on. It is not only Sonny  is there though, Monk in the white jacket is not to far away. Basie sitting on the gutter with the kids. Roy Eldridge with his head tuirned towards Dizzy Gillespie, (If you see doco on it Roy tells what was going on when the shot was taken with Diz next to him). Blakey, Mingus, Jimmy Rushing, Joe Jones ( Basie's drummer), Rex Stewart, Coleman Hawkins, Horace Silver, Lester Young, Mary Lou Williams and plenty more.
 
Is Sonny the only living one left? Maybe Mariam McPartland is still going  but I am not sure but hey what an historic and awesome photo.
 
It is on my living room wall
.My wife bought it for me about fifteen years ago for a birthday  present. Ain't she awesome HugHeart
 
What are your thoughts ? Has anyone got one at home or seen the documentary on the photo shot back in 1958

No, I think I saw this long ago, but had forgotten about it. Great shot.
