I was reading an article about how the style of Thelonious Monk is creeping back into the mainstream style this spring and I got to thinking about how cool all old jazz musicians looked. Like their music, their styles are bold and confident. Below are some of my favorites.

Birth of the Cool himself, Miles Davis

His hats and shades are coming into fashion this spring…Thelonious Monk

The sound of pure passion in his sax, John Coltrane

Charles Mingus

The Kansas City native, Charlie Parker

Dizzie Gillespie

The man who “freed” jazz, Ornette Coleman

Max Roach
