The Jazz Loft Project

Here is an audio-slideshow The Jazz Loft Project by New York Times. From 1957 to 1965 photographer W. Eugene Smith recorded  4,000 hours on 1,741 reel-to-reel tapes and took 40,000 photographs of major jazz musicians in a loft of Manhattan. This work was archived until Sam Stephenson published a book last year. Jeffrey Henson Scales produced this magnificent work. If you like Jazz you are going to enjoy this.
