Jose Horna (Bilbao, 1959)

Why a Jazz photographer? Who knows... I could name many things: recordings by Billie Holiday or John Coltrane, the photographs of maestros like Herman Leonard, William Claxton, William Gottlieb or Guy Le Querrec, the radio programmes of Pío Lindegaard or Juan Claudio Cifuentes "Cifu"... Whatever it was, from a more personal point of view I can say that, at times, just like the leading musician in a well-known story by Julio Cortázar, I have had the unforgettable feeling that I was photographing these conjunctions of music and images that transported me to a long, sad night like a Lester Young ballad... tomorrow.
