The above picture is of Al Jarreau with his favorite album, Les Double Six. It’s one of the 63 portraits from our One LP exhibition by William Ellis, ending this Friday, Oct 3. The show is at the ARC, 54 White St, NYC. Open 11am – 5pm.
Here’s a bit of what Mr. Jarreau says about the recording, “Double Six – when I was in college in my first year I had formed a singing group patterned along the lines of Lambert, Hendricks and Ross – and Double Six. Double Six changed my life – I listened to them instead of going to class – I think they almost sent me home! Very important music to me, I became friends with Michelle Legrand – his sister sang in the group then and Mimi Perrin – thank you Mimi! we’ll all see you soon. So Double Six – very important, lots of people important – but a special place for them.”
There are essay, interviews and audio available via QR links at the exhibition. And you can always access this material, and many other photos by Mr. Ellis via his website.
