Artist Jim Flora's Magnificent Trombones

Artist Jim Flora (1914-98) created many famous jazz images, including numerous album covers for Columbia Records in the 1940s and 50s. Below are four terrific trombone images that his estate has graciously allowed me to add to the Trombone History Timeline (20th Century). Each one features a notable trombonist in jazz history (in order, top to bottom: J.J. Johnson, Charlie Green, Kid Ory, and Miff Mole).
