Last year, Harlem, 1958, a beautiful book celebrating the 60th anniversary of the most famous picture in jazz history was published.

It remains a perfect gift for the jazz lover or the pop culture history buff in your life.

If you don’t know from Art Kane—art director and photographer extraordinaire—this is a fine introduction.

Co-edited by his son, Jonathan—himself a fabulously accomplished musician and photographer—I just adore this book.

Check, check it out. And for more on Kane, check out this 2014 Q&A at Interview Magazine with Jonathan as well as this whopper of a retrospective.

And just ’cause, enjoy Kane’s lovely portrait of the Queen of Soul:
