The National Jazz Archive: A Timeless Collection of Musical Legends Step into the world of jazz through the lens of Brian Foskett, a visionary creator who captured iconic moments in music history. From London to Los Angeles, his photographs have immortalized some of the greatest names in jazz. In 1967, Buddy Rich's drumming prowess took center stage at a London performance. Foskett's snapshot freezes time, showcasing Rich's unparalleled talent and passion for his craft. Paul Chambers' bass playing resonated with audiences in 1960 as Foskett expertly framed this momentous occasion. The photograph captures not only Chambers' skill but also the essence of an era defined by its groundbreaking musicianship. Joe Morello graced London with his presence in 1968, leaving audiences mesmerized by his virtuosity on the drums. Foskett's image encapsulates Morello's energy and charisma that made him a legend among jazz enthusiasts. The Royal Albert Hall witnessed an unforgettable gathering in 1989 when Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. , and Liza Minnelli shared their talents on one stage. Foskett masterfully captures this historic event, preserving forever the magic created by these three legendary performers. B. B. King brought his soulful blues to Mstricht Jazz Festival in the Netherlands during 1991. Through Foskett's lens, we witness King pouring out raw emotion from every note he played—a testament to his enduring legacy as "The King of Blues. " Jack DeJohnette commanded attention at Queen Elizabeth Hall in London during 1989 with his extraordinary drumming skills. In this photograph, Foskett showcases DeJohnette’s artistry and intensity that captivated all who were fortunate enough to witness it firsthand. Miles Davis Quintet transported listeners back to 1960 with their innovative soundscapes.
