Remembering Sonny Clark on his birthday 🎂
This Francis Wolff photo was taken during the rehearsal for Dexter Gordon’s Go! album, 1962
On Sonny Clark's birthday, read these remarkable dispatches from @SamStephenson12 in the @parisreview, beginning here:…
He managed to turn up Sonny's 1st grade photo from Washington School, Herminie no. 2, Pennsylvania, 1937-38. Sonny is front & centre.
"In the last eighteen months of Clark’s life, he would climb to daylight for brief periods, breath clean air, play some beautiful music, & then sink to lower and lower depths."
- @SamStephenson12

Leapin' & Lopin', recorded November 13, 1961 & released in May of 1962, features a marvellous portrait of Sonny Clark by Francis Wolff.
