1 negative : b&w ; 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 in.

Caption from Down Beat: For cover decoration this issue, staff lensman Bill Gottlieb lined up five of the most familiar beards in the music world, posed them simultaneously for a beard photo to end all beard photos–we hope. Reading from left to right, the gentry with the hirsute adornment are Dave Lambert, John Simmons, Chubby Jackson, George Handy and Dizzy Gillespie. You know, of course, that in the same order they are a singer, two bass players, an arranger and a trumpet man.
