Milt Hinton was not just one of America’s most beloved jazz bassists—he was also an avid shutterbug. From the 1930s to 1990s, he took thousands of photographs of jazz icons—onstage, in the studio and on the road. 

Combining rare pictures, footage and interviews with legendary musicians, this insider’s portrait of jazz history follows Hinton’s journey—from the Jim Crow South to New York City—through his unforgettable photographs of 20th-century American life.
