[Photographs]: Monterey Jazz Festival 1970

Monterey, California: 1970.

Sold

Unbound. A collection of 77 color Kodak photographs measuring between 3.5" x 5" and 5" x 7", without captions. Very slightly curled on the edges else near fine. An archive of snapshots taken by a spectator at the 1970 Monterey Jazz Festival. Acts that year included Duke Ellington, Modern Jazz Quartet, Cannonball Adderley Quintet, Joe Williams, Johnny Otis Show with Little Esther Phillips and Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson, Woody Herman Orchestra, Buddy Rich Orchestra, Ivory Joe Hunter, and Sonny Stitt & Gene Ammons. The images show the groups jamming, watching other performers, and smiling at the crowds. This particular year of the festival footage was used in Clint Eastwood’s directorial debut, *Play Misty for Me*, where he plays a late night jazz DJ. In a long segment from the film the festival is seen with crowd views, musicians playing, and Clint Eastwood himself walking through the festival. Eastwood, a lifelong jazz enthusiast, had been going to the Monterey Festival since its inception in the late 1950s. An interesting collection of images depicting a famous music festival.
