Classic Jazz Visions, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non profit company dedicated to preserving and promoting the artistic legacy of renown jazz photographer Jack Bradley. We combine his one of a kind images with the music of the Classic Jazz & Swing Orchestra for a unique multi-media experience.
Jack Bradley (1934-2021) was Louis Armstrong’s friend and photographer from 1959 until Armstrong’s death in 1971; he took thousands of pictures of Armstrong, his band, and family and friends, which are now archived at the Louis Armstrong House Museum in Queens, NY.
Along with Louis Armstrong, Bradley captured images of Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie, and dozens of other well known jazz musicians, many in the twilight of their careers.
The money raised through this and other presentations will help fund further concerts as well as a
scholarship for music/visual arts students.
