Birth of Cool

Dexter Gordon

Looking through the ICP bookshop they other day I came across a book of Herman Leonard’s pictures of Jazz icons. I’ve always been a fan not just because of the people he shot but the way he shot them. You can tell he was a fan of the music and his enthusiasm and understanding of the Jazz medium translates into the shots. See for yourself……..
