LORNA SASS’S JAZZ PORTRAITS (June 2009)

People know Lorna Sass’s brilliant photographs of Sicilian wildflowers, Utah rock formations, blossoms in Central Park, and urban landscapes: gargoyles and animals leering from apartment buildings, fences and benches, the architecture we don’t always see.  But how many people know her as a superb jazz photographer, someone who catches sound and emotion while they’re still fresh?  Here are some portraits taken in the last few days.  They resonate.  And if you don’t know Lorna’s fauna and flora, visit www.lornasassatlarge.wordpress.com

    Simply wonderful. And touches of nostalgia – old friend and music mate Dick Hyman looks as though he’s headed for Mt. Rushmore, and I remember all too well how Daryl met Dick (Sudhalter). She was at the Sheraton 6 nites a week – what? – 25 years ago – and I sent Dick to review her for the Post. I had just met her in the RCA studios. Hah! Thanks to Lorna on artistic and musical fronts…sp
