The Jazz Image by K. Heather Pinson


240 pgs.
University Press of Mississippi, Publ.

How photographer Herman Leonard and others created the icon of the sophisticated jazz musician. Pinson has created not only an analysis of the photographs of a leading American photographer, but a visual portal into the ways jazz musicians are imagined, regarded, and heard. This study of the production, travels, reincarnations, and many uses of Herman Leonard's jazz photographs brings a jazz study in which the visual is front-row-center.
