A new exhibition at the Yale University Art Gallery brings together Lee Friedlander and Milt Hinton's images capturing the people, spirit, and history of jazz. Friedlander's photographs of New Orleans musicians were made during a series of visits to the city from the late 1950s to the 1990s. The photos by renowned bassist Hinton  were shot over the course of his musical career, which spanned much of the 20th century, and offer an insider's view of the jazz scene. On view April 4 through Sept. 7, "Jazz Lives: The Photographs of Lee Friedlander and Milt Hinton" was organized by Yale students, including musicians from the Yale Undergraduate Jazz Collective. The exhibition is free and open to the public. Be sure to catch one of the performances by student, faculty, and community jazz groups throughout the run of the exhibition. Here are some of the images in the exhibition.
