Francis Wolff

Sometimes you have to play a long time to be able to play like yourself.
--Miles Davis

Wilbur Ware

John Coltrane

Ornette Coleman

Miles Davis

Francis Wolff was an executive at Blue Note Records, and often photographed musicians during their recording sessions. Crisp, graphic, and atmospheric begin to describe his lush portraits, even juicy. Even if the subjects weren't the embodiment of 'cool', the photos are sublime.
