Jerry Stoll: Jazz Icons at the Monterey Jazz Festival Exhibit

Jeffrey Moose Gallery is exhibiting the exquisite black & white works of San Francisco photographer, filmmaker, writer, and social activist Jerry Stoll, now through November 29. The gallery is located on Bainbridge Island and owned by Jeffrey Moose, drummer/vocalist for the gypsy jazz group Ranger and the Re-Arrangers. Many of the photos are available for sale as prints in a variety of sizes. For more details visit jeffreymoosegallery.com.

Jerry Stoll (1923-2004), working as the official photographer for the Monterey Jazz Festival’s first eight years, had a window into a pivotal time in jazz history as the big band scene gave way to be bop, cool jazz and, regionally, a distinctive West Coast sound. His shots of Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Billy Holiday contrast with those of the new era, such as Thelonius Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman.   


GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity, created in 2012 with the simple idea to dedicate a day that encourages people to do good. Celebrated annually on November 29, it has since grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Join the movement and give—each Tuesday and every day—whether it’s some of your time, a donation, or the power of your voice in your local community. Whether that’s donating to local jazz organizations, attendance & presence at a show, sharing a record—every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to contribute toward building the better world we all want to live in.
