Ornette Coleman: Photo by Jimmy Katz

Daniel J. Wakin writes:

A jazz musician takes musical matter and, without much detailed planning or many written notes, spins out lines into uncharted space. The great ones surprise us as their solos unwind, but their sound is always identifiable. Jimmy Katz, the photographer who generally works with his wife Dena Katz, compares their picture-taking to that kind of music-making. They struggle, he says, to capture spontaneity and maintain a consistent look.
