Historic Photo Of Seattle Jazz Musicians Goes On Sale To Benefit MusiCares
On May 6, 2007, nearly 300 jazz musicians who make up the rich scene of local jazz music in Seattle gathered on the steps of Seattle City Hall for a historic photograph. The photo, taken by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Daniel Sheehan, replicates the now famous "A Great Day in Harlem" shot in 1958 of many of New York's finest jazz musicians that went on to become an important historical artifact in the history of jazz music. The results of the Seattle photo, "A Great Day in Seattle," are now available in the form of limited-edition posters sold for $20 each at www.agreatdayinseattle.com. The posters, along with 20 original framed prints signed by all of the artists in the photo and signed and numbered by Sheehan, are being sold for $2,500 each, with all proceeds going to MusiCares.
