Jazz bassist Milt Hinton. He turned 90 years old a week ago today. Hinton is one of the great jazz bassists, having played with musicians like Cab Calloway, Dizzy Gillespie, Coleman Hawkins, Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday. Throughout his career, Hinton photographed the musicians he worked with, and the surroundings he moved through. His books “Bass Line: The Stories and Photographs of Milt Hinton” (Temple University Press), and “Overtime: The Jazz Photographs of Milt Hinton,” (Pomegranate) have been reprinted in paperback.
