Few things are as pure cool as the classic lounge with dim lights, a smoky haze, and the sounds of jazz playing in your ears. Peter Fetterman Gallery agrees, celebrating with some classic photos taken from jazz’s heyday.

Jazz holds a special place in our hearts here at the gallery. Early on, the genre reinvigorated the American sound of the time, bringing forth a grand rhythm that thrived on improvisation and syncopation. Through the keys of the piano, the reed of the saxophone, or the harmony of the vocal cords, amongst many other instruments, each musician offered a window into their thoughts and emotions. To no surprise, such performances were of fascination to some of the greatest photographers of our time. Please enjoy below a wonderful group of images that celebrate the legacy and impact of Jazz through the lens of a special group of artists.
Happy Jazz Appreciation Month!
