In 1952 Esther Bubley was in LA, and her friend, illustrator David Stone Martin, was in LA to make sketches at a Charlie Parker Jam Session, and he invited Bubley to come along. So it happened that she was the photographer at the Norman Granz Jam Session recording in 1952. This book is the ultimate Charlie Parker photo essay, showing him in a variety of moods: attentive, jovial, exhausted, nervous, and most of all, respectful towards Johnny Hodges and Benny Carter, both of whom were Charlie's idols. It features timeless pictures of Bird, Benny Carter, Ben Webster, Flip Philips, Johnny Hodges, Charlie Shavers, Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Barney Kessel, and J.C. Heard.
