Finding Sonny Clark

SOURCE: Published: 2010-08-25
Sam Stephenson's JAZZ LOFT PROJECT blog is one I visit regularly—not only for its subject matter but for the caliber of Sam's prose. Often the site's subject is the magical and mysterious music and life revolving around Eugene Smith, photographer and thinker and friend of jazz.

But today I was captivated by a black-and-white picture of a first grade class . . . which turns out to have the jazz pianist Sonny Clark in its front row. I'm calling your attention to this post because of the loving perceptive research into someone's life that Sam is doing here.

Even if you're not as deep into Clark's life and music as Sam is, you should read this posting: jazzloftproject.org
