William Claxton (1927-2008)

Steve embraces the family cat, kitty kat, in the kitchen of his new home. It was a wonderful contrast of his tough-guy image with his tenderness to the little pet.

William Claxton (1927-2008)

Jazz is musical improvisation; it is the art of the moment. In the recording of jazz, the inspiration and inventiveness of this moment is made permanent by technology, giving pleasure many years after the performance.

Photography is jazz for the eye.
- William Claxton
