Paintings of jazz

This is a good new blog: The 1959 Project, described as ‘A snapshot of jazz 60 years ago, every day.’

As I write, today’s post is about a series of paintings by Morton Roberts that featured in a problematic LIFE article from December ’58. They also featured in a show which closed 60 years ago, hence them being the subject of today’s post.
