A stunning selection of rare jazz photographs, most of which have never been seen before – all shot at the Newport and Monterey Jazz Festivals during the 1960s, with a span across the decade that really shows a shift in sound and style! The book has way more than just shots of big name players on stage – although there are plenty of those, too – as it also includes great images of the crowd, the towns in which the festivals were held, and lots of other amazing bits that really sets the scene for the main photographs. Artists captured include Charles
Mingus, Mary Lou Williams, Ben Webster, Muddy Waters, Charles McPherson
, Jackie McLean, Wes Montgomery, Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins, Dave Pike, Don Cherry, Gerry Mulligan, Scott LaFaro, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley, and dozens of others – and the book is very heavy and oversized – 336 pages, hardcover, in vivid black and white.
