Somewhere There's Music.
Photographs by Larry Fink. Essay by George Panichas.
160 pp., 80 duotone illustrations, 9½x11".
Larry Fink secured enduring fame with the book Social Graces, which
mixed images from working-class Pennsylvania with a portfolio from
upper-crust Manhattan, observing manners and mores on the long, curvy
couches of Studio 54 and in the chaos of Pat Sabatine’s eighth birthday
party, where the screen door is always just about to slam. Fink has always
been interested in what high and low culture have to say to one another,
and has continued to seek the best of both behind the scenes at fashion
shows in Runway and in the ring with sparring fighters in Boxing.
Somewhere There’s Music collects Fink’s mostly-unpublished black-and-white
jazz photographs from the 1950s to the late 1970s. In these
photos Fink captures the cool heights of the Beat era, from Harlem’s
famous Lennox Lounge, where the reader can almost hear John Coltrane
serenading with his sax, to the Village Vanguard, where Sonny Rollins and
Miles Davis made history. Other legends captured by Fink’s lens include
Marion Brown, Roland Kirk, Steve Lacey, Leroy Jenkins (Revolutionary
Ensemble), Archie Shepp and Lightning Hopkins, among many others.
Sit back and be transported to another time with the hip cats of the jazz
era in this passionate book featuring more than 80 duotone prints.
