A black and white photograph of Lester Bowie at Sweet Basil, NYC. Bowie stands at the beginning of a hallway, next to a tuba. He wears a long white jacket over darker colored shirt, tie and pants. To the right of him, a board announces the scheduled performances, reading: [SWEET BASIL / THIS WEEK LESTER BOWIE BRASS FANTASY] at the top. On the back is an inscription with the title, date and photographer's signature and stamp.
A black and white photographic portrait of Betty Carter during a performance. Aside from Carter's face and body, elements of the photograph are out of focus, giving a blurred, halo effect. Carter is on stage, with her mouth open in performance. Microphones, instruments, and a curtain are visible, but out of focus in the background.
