WNPR News reviews Yale University Art Gallery’s Jazz Lives: The Photographs of Lee Friedlander and Milt Hinton. The exhibit unites the perspectives of Lee Friedlander, a professional photographer, and Milt Hinton, a jazz bassist, to provide insight into the world of jazz from 1936 to 1999. The show runs through 7 September 2014.
Friedlander and Hinton’s jazz photographs are, like a fine duo, so simpatico that Molleen Theodore, assistant curator of programs, suggested their works “will be in dialogue” in the gallery, a kind of visual chamber jazz playing thematically off one another. –Owen McNally
