Kindred Cool is a photography project that uses relationship between Ralph Ellison, Romare Bearden and Albert Murray as an inspiration for documenting other friendships forged and fostered through a shared appreciation for jazz. Through photographic portraits, Kindred Cool serves as a visual documentary project showcasing the diversity of the jazz diaspora, that is, individuals who are inspired by American classical music: jazz. The subjects of Kindred Cool are a motley crew of jazz educators, vocalists and instrumentalists, rappers, aficionados, journalists, publicists, dancers and painters. A partial list of those photographed for Kindred Cool are Ellis Marsalis, Ladybug Mecca, Randy Weston, Mos Def, DJ Spooky, Vijay Iyer, Rhonda Ross, Brian Jackson, Farah Jasmine Griffin among many others of 'jazz society.'
