Blue Notes in Black and White - Photography and Jazz


345 pgs.
The University of Chicago Press, Publ.

Benjamin Cawthra celebrates the great jazz photographers--including Gjon Mili, William Gottlieb, Herman Leonard, Francis Wolff, Roy DeCarava, and William Claxton--and their struggles, hustles, styles, and creative visions when photographing legendary subjects, such as Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, John Coltrane, and other iconic figures. Charting the development of jazz photography from the swing era of the 1930s to the rise of black nationalism in the 1960s, it is a fascinating account of the partnership between two of the twentieth century's most innovative art forms.
