William P. Gottlieb (1917-2006) was one of the great jazz photographers. His iconic images documenting the great stylists and innovators in American jazz and popular music have been studied and reproduced for generations, and his collection of photographs is one of the Library’s great treasures. The Music Division is now pleased to announce the launch of the William P. Gottlieb Collection on the Library’s Flickr pilot.

Wonderful stuff. And, I love that the Library is still calling it a pilot after two years.
