On View - Nov 16, 2016 - Nov 16, 2016

Featuring more than 30 of Leonard’s portraits from performances, rehearsals, recording sessions and backstage gatherings, Herman Leonard: Documenting the Giants of Jazz features photos ranging from the years 1948 – 2000. Providing a glimpse into the world of jazz, bebop and even Leonard himself, the exhibit will feature both rare and iconic shots of musicians from including Duke Ellington, Etta James, Billie Holliday, Miles Davis, Quincy Jones, Trombone Shorty and many, many more.

Herman Leonard had that rare ability to connect with his subjects, and capture a side of musicians that many had never been seen before. Leonard’s stunning photographs have been showcased worldwide and his body of work is a historical treasure. We are honored to be displaying such works at the GRAMMY Museum.
