Larry Fink: Somewhere there’s music
Somewhere Theres Music is an extraordinary collection of portraits dedicated to the musical world and its protagonists, with a special attention paid to jazz musicians. The collection of images seems particularly significant with respect to previous ones, as it documents the photographers career, chronologically and in its entirety and testifies to Finks sensitivity towards the esthetic value of jazz music, as well as to the deeper connotations expressed by its history. As explained by George Panichas in his text: As can be witnessed in the photographs reproduced in this volume, Finks response to the musicians whose images he records has a distinctively moral quality; it is one of profound respect. This respect is the appropriate response it is something owed to those who, in the face of multiple and persistent burdens, worked knowledgably, creatively, and with integrity. All the most important jazz musicians have been recorded by Finks camera: from Coleman Hawkins to Lightning Hopkins, from Archie Shepp to Albert Ayler, from Roland Kirk to Marion Brown, from Leroy Jenkins to Jackie McLean…
