American Musicians. Photographs by Lee Friedlander. As the house photographer for Atlantic Records in the 1950s, Lee Friedlander's images define the artists of American Jazz's most groundbreaking period, as well as the birth of R&B and modern country as well. In color and black-and-white, Friedlander's portraits graced countless album covers and liner notes. These images have a well developed dramatic style--markedly different from his brilliantly alienated self-portraits and chaotic street scenes--portraying artists as diverse as Miles Davis and Johnny Cash, Thelonious Monk and Carl Perkins, John Coltrane and Nat King Cole.
