New from the Library of Congress,
on May 10, 2011 -
Between 1938 and 1948, William P. Gottlieb wrote about and photographed the jazz world. In 1995, the Library of Congress acquired his collection of
approximately 1500 photographs covering more than 250 jazz musicians
. While discussed here
seven years ago
, not mentioned at that time was the fact that Mr. Gottlieb agreed to transfer his copyrights into the public domain 15 years after acquisition. Fast forward to 2010, and you will find that the Library has added high resolution TIFFs download links to the image pages (click on the thumbnail images to get to the TIFF download links).
A few pictures to whet your appetite:
Ella Fitzgerald and Dizzy Gillespie
Nat King Cole
