William Claxton's Jazz is an exciting and original collection of over seventy duotone portraits of such jazz greats as Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday, Gerry Mulligan, Mahalia Jackson, Dave Brubeck, Chet Baker, Thelonious Monk, Art Pepper, and Max Roach. Hailed as a classic and now available in an elegant paperback edition, Jazz is perhaps the first art photography book devoted to jazz musicians. By turns exuberant, joyful, and contemplative, Claxton's keen, intuitive photographs capture the nuances of the intimacy between jazz musicians and their music. With a foreword by Leonard Feather and an afterword by Terry Southern, this seminal classic is a must for anyone who appreciates jazz and fine photography.

Hands down my favorite book of photography (well, until Philip Buehler's book comes out anyway). Wonderful imagery of an age I wish I could have seen firsthand. Read full review
