“How you know you’ve made it in jazz”, is the way NPR described Jimmy Katz’ photography. Blue Note producer Michael Cuscuna said, “His photographs define an era”. For almost 30 years, Jimmy Katz has captured the icons of jazz, blues and popular musicians in the act with a viewpoint and ethos that sets his images apart. His work has appeared on more than 120 music magazine covers and he has been twice selected by the Jazz Journalists Association for their Photography Award. Work of his is in the Houston Museum of Fine Art and in the permanent collection of the Jewish Museum in Berlin.
Katz’ music portraits sing with a voice that’s singular and memorable. Of the 3 books he’s published, Jazz Katz (2007) contains many of his best portraits. The book, now out of print, is worthy searching for. But his prints are fine works of art from a man the great Herman Leonard called, “the best working jazz photographer on earth.”
