Excellent collection of some of Herman Leonard's best work Brings back fond memories of smoke-filled jazz lounges

Excellent collection of some of Herman Leonard's best work Brings back fond memories of smoke-filled jazz lounges. This book contains many of the first images that Herman produced after he came out of retirement in the 70s. They represent a magnificent example of the astonishing ability of Herman to print difficult negatives and create a masterpiece out of what for most others would be a reject. There was never a doubt that Herman was the great capturer of 'the perfect shot' but this, combined with his sheer darkroom skills and ability, make almost every picture in the book an iconic representation of the Jazz photo.

Publisher's Description. In these photographs, all the banal mess of the average jazz musician's life in the post-war years-the booze and drugs and bone chilling dawns, the rapacious managers, indifferent club owners, vengeful booking agents and interfering A&R men, the endless cross-country treks in overloaded and unreliable cars, the fly-blown boarding houses and segregated restaurants, the broken

Herman Leonard is the American photographer known by many as responsible for helping shape the visual archetype of the jazz musician. Leonard’s immense collection of jazz photography is to this day a national treasure, not just for the famous faces he captured, but for the ideals, values, and achievements associated with the mental idea of an accomplished jazz musician, a notion which K. Heather Pinson terms the jazz image in her 2010 book detailing the significance of Leonard’s work.

Great quality!
Cover was a bit washed but it's ok because it was warned before on the profile since it's a previously owned product.
Thank you!!

This is a great coffee table book for any jazz lover.
The photos really give you a look at the artist in his or her element. I bought the book used and the sellers discription was perfect. I was not disappointed.

Herman's attention to this book far superseded his own contribution in providing the finished images. He was determined that the company printing the book got as close to the tonal range on the printed page as he did on an original print. The book is a magnificent tribute to Herman and tributes to Jazz, photography and the art of book printing. If you want a better image you will have to find an original.

These black and white photographs of jazz greats and originators are beautiful and poignant. I love the photos of the artists in action, often in smoke-filled nighclubs. More than those photos, I adore the behind the scenes photos. There are serious and real sides of Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong captured here, that the public never had a chance to see. I received this book twenty something years ago. I was too shy to ask Alvin Jones and Max Roach to sign it when I saw them perform (seperate gigs). But, as a young twenty-something, I had the nerve ask and have Joe Williams sign his photograph. I'm requesting another copy on my wish list so that I can frame several of the prints for my home. It's really a "must have".
