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
The Kansas City native, Charlie Parker
The man who “freed” jazz, Ornette Coleman
