Greatness. Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman, as captured by Herman Leonard

If you are lucky in life, you will get to be at a club or venue and be in the presence of greatness.  It doesn’t happen often, and it is captured in photography even less. Fortunately here’s one such moment, captured by Herman Leonard, of Ella singing while Duke
Ellington and Benny Goodman are in the audience, soaking it up with delight.

Such a great moment, captured by a great photographer.

I found this on the blog  Iconic Photos, where you can find more on Leonard, as well as a link to alot of his great images. Enjoy!
