Left: Buddy Collette August 6, 1921 – September 19, 2010/right: producer Harvey Kubernik

My photo of Buddy Collette from the recording sessions for "Buddy Collette: a Jazz Audio Biography" double cd set of his spoken word adventures, produced by Harvey Kubernik (seen at right,) liner notes by Kirk Silsbee. Collette's tales of civil rights activism on the West Coast with Paul Robeson and Frank Sinatra, and of working with jazz greats from Charles Mingus to Eric Dolphy were as intriguing as his artistry with flute and saxophone.
