Synopsis

The Jazz Image Masters of Jazz Photography by Lee Tanner

The Jazz Image: Masters of Jazz Photography has been carefully culled by Lee Tanner, the leading authority on jazz photography and photographers, and covers more than four decades of performers. If music is an international language, then jazz is the unofficial American ambassador to the world. These incredible images are both historical documents and cultural artifacts, as they are simultaneously records of a period and works of art unto themselves. The photos Tanner has selected are iconic, candid, explosive and intimate - together the book gives readers a unique look at jazz, photography and America, from 1935-65.

About the Author

Lee Tanner has been photographing jazz musicians for nearly half a century and was a jazz fanatic from an early age. His photographs have appeared in Rolling Stone, Jazz Magazine (France), Jazz Times, American Photo and Popular Photography. Nat Hentoff is a jazz critic, historian, biographer, anecdotist and columnist for the Village Voice, Legal Times, Washington Times, The Progressive and Jewish World Review. He was named as one of six 2004 NEA Jazz Masters, the first non-musician to win this prestigious award
