£2,900.00 GBP £4,000.00

An original photograph of Cannonball Adderley from 1956 by Herman Leonard.

For over 50 years, Leonard was embedded in the jazz scene, trading prints of the performers for access to the clubs. Leonard's works adorned over 200 album covers, and his dramatically lit photos of Jazz greats in the 1940s-50s remain highly sought after by collectors.

This iconic piece is an iconic representation of one of the great Jazz players of all time, and a testament to Herman Leonard's idiosyncratic style. An important addition to any collection and piece of both musical and photographic history.
