Jazz in New York: A Community of Visions

Thursday, February 3, 2011 - 9:00am to Saturday, July 9, 2011 - 5:00pm
Lourdes Delgado
Kreps Gallery

In Jazz in New York, Spanish photographer Lourdes Delgado documents in spectacular detail the lives and personalities of contemporary New York jazz musicians. Exploring jazz from a social, economic, and cultural viewpoint, Delgado photographs the artists in their homes not only to capture the spaces they inhabit but to present an alternative, less familiar representation of professional jazz musicians. The show celebrates this vibrant community and features such musicians as Kenny Barron, David Sanborn, Jeff Ballard, Stanley Crouch, Robert Glasper, Butch Morris, Christian McBride, and Ingrid Jensen.

Presented in collaboration with the Jazz Loft Project exhibition at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University
