ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Bill Goldberg, well regarded owner of Los Angele's acclaimed Verve Gallery, is collaborating with his colleague Armando Arorizo of The Perfect Exposure Gallery.
Together they have created a variation of Verve's original May 1992 exhibit. The Los Angeles Times quoted Goldberg as saying. "there is nothing more quintessentially American than baseball and the blues". Many of the blues and jazz photo's take one back in time.... it's as if the sounds fill the room when viewing these photographs. Other images catch the artists after their sets in more informal, spontaneous and intimate situations. Images of John Lee Hooker, Joe Williams, Miles Davis, John Coltrane and on and on give the viewer a lesson in American history, blues/jazz history as well African American history.
So different yet so similar are the images of Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Cuban "street baseball", et. al. that create an amazing contrast to the music photo's yet synergism of a bygone era that we all embrace and constantly dseire to recapture and relive.
