Big handsome book; 11-1/4 x 12" ; weighs nearly 3 pounds. 144 pages, illustrated with 135 glossy black & white photographs . Jazz is predominantly about the primacy of the individual voice . Jazz requires its musicians to make something new each time they take the stand . Look behind the faces in these pages and try to imagine the sheer volume of creative thought expended by these men and women in the course of their long careers . Not 'interpreting' , in the way of classical musicians, but inventing themselves anew each night ('I don't play that way no more', Miles Davis once said) . If they are honest, that is the only way . And, as Ornette Coleman remarked, 'It was when I realized I could make mistakes that I realized I was on to something.' . This is the intriguing paradox that drives the music and its practitioners . This is the framework to bear in mind when viewing the magnificent photographs in this volume . Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Art Pepper, Charlie Mingus, Billie Holiday, these and many others are to be found within, both performing and off stage, captured by the veryt greatest jazz photographers . Complementing these images is Richard Williams' superb scene-setting commentary which discloses fascinating background infomation on each musician featured .
