  • The story behind a photograph conceived by Esquire Magazine art director Art Kane. He gathered all the greats in the Jazz world for a group shot on a sultry summer day on 125th Street in Harlem, 1958. With a "cast" that includes Sonny Rollins, Dizzy Gillespie, and Art Blakely, this documentary provides a rare glimpse into the close-knit, warm world of the Jazz era, as well as some heartwarming and amusing footage of legends just being themselves.
