The Pictorial Chronical Of 1960s Jazz

This is the classic book that takes readers on a coast-to-coast journey in search of the living, breathing, beating musical phenomenon that is American Jazz. In 1960, photographer William Claxton and noted musicologist Joachim Berendt traveled the United States to document the many spaces and people this music touched across social, economic, and racial lines. The result of their collaboration was Jazzlife, much sought after by collectors and now revived in this fresh volume. In New Orleans and New York, Chicago, St. Louis, Biloxi, and beyond, Claxton’s rapturous yet tender images and accompanying texts examine jazz’s regional diversity as much as its pervasive vitality and soul. With images of Charlie Parker, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, and many more. Hardcover in slipcase, 600 pages. 9 1/2" H x 13 1/4" W. (9 lbs.)
