The L.A. gallery, located in the lobby of the luxurious Sunset Marquis in West Hollywood, will celebrate Jazz: The Birth of Cool with an opening reception from 7 to 10 PM on Thursday, April 25th.

At all three gallery locations, attendees will have the opportunity to purchase exclusive items commemorating this special exhibit.

Among them are deluxe copies of Art Kane. Harlem 1958, the extraordinary monograph envisioned by Jonathan Kane (Art's son), Quincy Jones, and Benny Golson commemorating the historic date when photography legend Art Kane gathered 57 jazz icons in Harlem for his first professional shoot for Esquire magazine. Each copy of the book will include a signed and numbered limited edition fine art print and commemorative poster.

There will also be a selection of signed books available by jazz photography phenom Herman Leonard. The autographed books offer a chance for jazz fans to take home a piece of jazz music history.

"I am very excited about this particular exhibition," said Casey Fannin-Kaplan, L.A. Gallery Director. "What better way to celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month than showcasing the extraordinary heritage and history of all the jazz giants through photography. We represent photographers that not only documented the jazz scene in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, but told a story through their lens that no one else was telling. Some of these legendary photographers include Herman Leonard, Francis Wolff, and Don Hunstein."
