“A Great Day in Harlem - Art Kane” 
#jazz 
#jazzmusic 
126th Street in Harlem on August 12 morning in 1958, the historic 
crowd of Jazz musicians gathered around a brownstone between Madison & 
Fifth avenues for what photographer #ArtKane rightly, if immodestly, 
calls “the greatest picture of that era of musicians ever taken” 
(incredibly, it was also Kane’s first professional shoot.) 
Collectively they spanned the history of Jazz. The 57 artists stood at 
10 a.m. (an absurd hour for musicians) to have their picture taken for 
a Jazz issue of Esquire magazine, which has come to be known as “A 
Great Day in Harlem”. 
(L - R) Hilton Jefferson, Benny Golson*, Art Farmer, Wilbur Ware, Art 
Blakey, Chubby Jackson, Johnny Griffin, Dickie Wells, Buck Clayton, 
Taft Jordan, Zutty Singleton, Red Allen, Tyree Glenn, Miff Molo, Sonny 
Greer, Jay C. Higginbotham, Jimmy Jones, Charles Mingus, Jo Jones, 
Gene Krupa, Max Kaminsky, George Wettling, Bud Freeman, Pee Wee 
Russell, Ernie Wilkins, Buster Bailey, Osie Johnson, Gigi Gryce, Hank 
Jones, Eddie Locke, Horace Silver, Luckey Roberts, Maxine Sullivan, 
Jimmy Rushing, Joe Thomas, Scoville Browne, Stuff Smith, Bill Crump, 
Coleman Hawkins, Rudy Powell, Oscar Pettiford, Sahib Shihab, Marian 
McPartland, Sonny Rollins*, Lawrence Brown, Mary Lou Williams, Emmett 
Berry, Thelonius Monk, Vic Dickenson, Milt Hinton, Lester Young, Rex 
Stewart, J.C. Heard, Gerry Mulligan, Roy Eldgridge, Dizzy Gillespie, 
Count Basie.
