To celebrate the East Coast launch of Jazz Festival: Jim Marshall, a tribute to the legendary photographer, Jazz at Lincoln Center will host a book signing and discussion on Oct. 14-15 at 7 p.m. in the Agnes Varis and Karl Leichtman Studio at JALC’s Frederick P. Rose Hall, located at Broadway at 60th Street in New York. Following these special events will be JALC’s “Jazz 100: The Music of Dizzy, Ella, Mongo & Monk” concerts, which will take place at 8 p.m. in the Rose Theater.

JALC’s director of public programs and education resources Seton Hawkins, along with Jazz Festival: Jim Marshall author and designer Graham Marsh and editors Amelia Davis and Tony Nourmand, will discuss the photographs, some never-before-seen, of such iconic jazz figures as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Wes Montgomery, Ben Webster, Nina Simone, Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane, taken by Marshall who “managed to capture the freedom, excitement and intimacy of the Newport Jazz Festivals and Monterey Jazz Festivals of the 1960s,” according to a press release.
