From John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk to The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix, Jim Marshall has photographed many of the greatest musicians of our time. And he’s snapped some of the absolutely most essential photographs of Miles Davis.
In conjunction with the team at Groovy Collectibles LLC, Marshall has launched MarshallPhoto.com, the official site for the sale of his prints, memorabilia, and related rarities and collectibles.

MarshallPhoto.com currently offers 160 fine art images for sale, ranging from beautifully printed silver gelatin black and white images like Jerry Garcia at Woodstock, or Johnny Cash flipping the bird; a stunning selection of black and white limited-edition platinum prints, such as Thelonious Monk at his kitchen piano; and highly prized limited-edition dye transfer color prints like The Who rocking the San Francisco Civic Auditorium in 1971.
The collection also features perhaps the single most recognized image in rock history – Jimi Hendrix kneeling over his burning guitar at the Monterey Pop Festival. By early 2010, MarshallPhoto.com plans to feature more than 300 Hendrix photos.
