"Coltrane Hand on Chin- 1960" Jim Marshall (Californian, 1936-2010) Jim Marshall has been called the most celebrated and prolific photographer of the 20th century and is widely known for his iconic music photography. His over 50-year career created hundreds of legendary images that came into the public consciousness through magazine features, more than 500 album covers, and six books, Monterey Pop, Not Fade Away, Proof, Jazz, Trust and Pocket Cash. “After a gig one evening in San Francisco in 1960, Coltrane asked Jim, “How do you get to Berkeley?” He had a meeting with the San Francisco Chronicle’s legendary music critic Ralph J. Gleason at his Berkeley Hills home the next day and he had no clue how to get there. Gleason’s bona fides are too numerous to mention (first jazz critic at a U.S. daily newspaper, came up with Monterey Jazz Festival concept, gave Jann Wenner $1,500 to start “Rolling Stone, etc. etc.). Jim was well aware of Gleason’s crucial role connecting music, culture and politics and, sensing the import of the moment, he offered to drive Coltrane to Gleason’s and was allowed to stay and shoot … and the rest is history.
