Hot Licks, Cool Clothes

February 18, 1996

Back in the '50s and '60s, when jazz greats played clubs like Casablanca and the Jungle Room, L.A. was at its musical coolest. And legendary photographer William Claxton, a California native, was there. He chronicled the scene and captured the likes of Bird and Baker for what would become classic album cover art. Now the City of Angels is once again a hotbed for hip riffs. Here, a few of today's stars, photographed by Claxton at Capitol Records' Studio A, practice their art while showing off a little spring sartorial improvisation.
