The Jazz People of New Orleans
by Lee Friedlander
Publisher's Description
Internationally acclaimed photographer Lee Friedlander created this rich array of images during visits to New Orleans from 1957-1974. Friedlander focused especially on the musicians who create the jazz that is the life pulse of the city. "At once highly objective and deeply intimate, these photographs capture, unerringly, the complex humanity of creators of jazz and blues. . . ."--the publisher. The introduction by Whitney Balliett, jazz critic of The New York Times, creates a lucid counterpoint to Friedlander's vision of the world of blues and jazz in New Orleans.
