Description

"Looking at these beautiful photos evokes a warm remembrance of times gone by. Many of the musicians were friends of mine, and thinking of the lives of these great men and women, devoted to their art, reminds me of the fine jazz they played. The short biography of each musician, like a mini-jazz history, serves to illuminate lives that were filled with music, which still echoes in our hearts and minds." -Marian McPartland, host of NPR's Piano Jazz Jazz in Black and White collects Duncan Schiedt's classic black-and-white photographs of some of the world's most famous jazz musicians. Each photograph is introduced by a brief biographical summary of the artist, along with a memoir about the photograph's creation that gives the reader a sense of "having been there." Included are Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Wes Montgomery, Mary Lou Williams, Lester Young, and Thelonious Monk.
