Portland’s golden age of jazz peaked between 1948 and 1956. During those years, national and West Coast jazz tours always stopped in Portland.
Local photographer Carl Henniger took pictures of stars like Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie for Down Beat magazine.
Through the work of Carl’s son Michael and the financial support of the Regional Arts and Cultural Council, 30 of these images are presented in this exhibition.
