The Eye of Jazz: The Jazz Photographs of Herman Leonard
by Herman Leonard
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 piano keys and the saxophone held together with rubber bands and paper clips, the twisters and fixers and hustlers and pushers of every description--fall away to reveal the pure and graceful outline of the artist."--Richard Williams, Sunday Times Magazine.
