Description
Since the 1950s, Herman Leonard's photographs of jazz musicians have helped shape the image of the music and the world in which it was created. Leonard took his camera into the smoky clubs and after-hours sessions, to backstage parties and musicians' apartments, to build an incomparable visual record of one of the 20th century's most significant art forms. For this definitive collection, Leonard has retrieved scores of previously unseen photographs, published here for the first time, alongside his most famous and widely recognized images of Charlie Parker, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, and many others. An accompanying essay explores the stories behind the pictures, and an interview with Leonard reveals many of his techniques.

"There have been many great jazz photographers but none more accomplished than Herman Leonard. In a celebrated career that began in the late 1940s, Mr. Leonard … is responsible for some of [the] defining images [of jazz]."—NYTimes
