Late nite jazz portraits..

..from the great record producer and photographer, Francis Wolff.

Jazz cats might recognize that some of these made their way onto album covers (or at least into liner notes) for Blue Note Records, which produced some great, great cover art (and music).

Here’s a small selection of some of our favorites.
