Jim Marshall: Jazz
by Jim Marshall
Publisher's Description
An unexpected trove, Jim Marshall's portraits of the jazz greats are as wonderful as his legendary work with rock musicians (most recently enjoyed in Jim Marshall: Proof). The access his subjects allow him and their obvious ease around him give these photographs an unequalled intimacy. This portfolio of Marshall's favorite shots shows the classics of jazz onstage, backstage, in the studio—and also in their kitchens and living rooms. Ray Charles, Duke Ellington, Sarah Vaughan, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Coleman Hawkins—Marshall's images capture these faces and many, many more in authentic and unguarded moments. Jazz critic Phil Elwood provides an introduction, and captions throughout present Marshall's reminiscences in his own words, making this book a must-have for both jazz and photography aficionados. By turns illuminating and haunting, Jim Marshall: Jazz confirms his place as one of the great portrait photographers.

Jim Marshall's more than five hundred album and CD covers and his photographs of the original Woodstock and other key moments of the 1960s make him one of the most renowned music and pop culture photographers ever. He lives in San Francisco.

Phil Elwood was the jazz critic for the San Francisco Examiner for three decades and is now a featured columnist at JazzWest.com.
