How many great jazz musicians can you fit on a stoop?

Just a quick post to alert you all that there's a really great little internet feature on an incredible, famous photo that was taken in Harlem in 1958 that featured about 60 of the greatest jazz musicians of that era and some before.  You might have seen this iconic picture before, but the New York Daily News has taken it a really great step further in this interactive feature:  Click on any of the musicians in the photo at this link, and you can hear a clip of their music!  Amazing;  what a wealth of talent gathered on those steps that day (Count Basie got tired of standing so he sat on the curb, and a bunch of kids joined him, one of whom kept playing with his hat while they were trying to take the pic).  Enjoy;  1958 was truly a vintage year for great jazz!:
