I recently have went to the Sidney Mishkin Gallery – Milt Hinton’s Jazz Photographs. I found this gallery very interesting because I use to be a musician myself. I played the saxophone and I enjoyed very much learning and playing classical and jazz music. The whole gallery this month was dedicated to jazz and learning about the history of where some of our greatest pieces of music came very had a huge impact on me. The atmosphere of the gallery was a great and relaxing one. There was no one there to talk or anything so I got to enjoy the gallery to the fullest. Walking around and seeing the pictures of the greatest jazz musicians was a great experience. Playing the music was one thing but learning the history of where the music came from helped me understand the music and helps me play it better. Learning the history of the music helped me get a better understanding and helped me get the flow of the music better. Another picture I found pretty interesting is the Benny Goodman. It shows him holding the Clarinet but it almost looks like he’s conducting. I found this pretty amazing because the picture is very misleading you do not know if he’s conducting or playing. The clarinet in one hand and his other hand raised as if he’s keeping time.
