BOX 34, 39-40 Iconography, circa 1940-2015
Photographs of Charles Mingus, his family, friends, and colleagues comprise the majority of the Iconography Series. The first subseries of photographs and negatives are of Charles Mingus alone, with other musicians, or with his family. The photographs of other musicians are candid images or headshots of jazz musicians that include Eric Dolphy, Duke Ellington, Maynard Ferguson, and Artie Shaw, among others, as well as negatives and photo-postcards. There is one piece of artwork in this subseries, the painting “Space Soul” by Elliott Cola. Cola’s music is located in the “Music by Others” subseries of the Music Series.
Cover Art contains artwork for several Mingus albums, among them Tijuana Moods, Changes One and Two, and Mingus at Monterey. There is also cover art for albums by Debut Records artists Jimmy Knepper, Thad Jones, and Max Roach.
