Chubby Jackson (by William P. Gottlieb)

The Music Division has uploaded its latest batch of William P. Gottlieb jazz photos onto our Flickr site. Several are particularly eye-catching, notably the two images of bassist Chubby Jackson: one  with dramatic lighting, the other showing Jackson’s irrepressible personality. There is an impressive triple exposure of bandleader Jerry Jerome, and an unusual shot of Louis Jordan catching 40 winks in between shows. I’m also quite fond of the photograph of guitarist Carl Kress. The low angle shot makes it appear that the instrument is his body. And lastly, how can you resist another shot of Billie Holiday’s dog, Mister?
