Overview
The great improvisational American jazz musicians of the mid-20th century inspired a generation of photographers to develop a looser, moodier style of visual expression. That evocative approach is on striking display in "The Jazz Image." Covering six decades of performers -- from Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington to John Coltrane and Miles Davis -- this unique collection is as much a comprehensive catalogue of jazz greats as it is a salute to the photographers who captured them.
Lee Tanner, a leading authority on jazz photography, has selected works -- by such noted jazz photographers as Herman Leonard, Bob Willoughby, Milt Hinton, and Bill Claxton -- that are iconic, candid, explosive, and intimate. They provide a simultaneous look at jazz, photography, and America from 1935 into the 1990s.
