Jazz Photo Exhibit in Newark

“Stolen Moments,” an exhibition of photographs of jazz musicians by photographer Fran Kaufman, is on view at the WBGO Gallery in Newark, NJ, now through January 30. The photos, dating back to 1996, show musicians mostly at unguarded moments-backstage, in the recording studio, preparing for their gigs. A photo of violinist Regina Carter and vocalist Carla Cook catches them as they prepare for Carter’s wedding in Detroit. Pianist Cyrus Chestnut is seen as he finishes up a session in the Steinway showroom; and the members of Trio da Paz are captured in a casual environment, rehearsing on a patio in the Caribbean with vibraphonist Stefon Harris.

There are close to 50 images in the exhibition, selected from Kaufman’s archive of black and white photos.
