Jim Marshall (1936-2010) is a defining contributor to the history of music photography. His photographs of the legends of rock roll, country, folk, blues and jazz are well-known to many. Jazz Festival contains 95% previously unpublished photographs of jazz festivals from the Marshall archive.
From the publisher's description, "Marshall s remarkable photographs of the festivals at Newport and Monterey immortalize the unique energy and soul of these celebrations of jazz. This immersive body of work feels like experiencing the atmosphere of those summer days first hand. Marshall s inimitable lens captured the crowd, the performances and unguarded moments with jazz icons like Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Nina Simone, and many more."
The book includes a foreword by President Bill Clinton, an introduction by legendary jazz writer Nat Hentoff and is designed by art director Graham Marsh. You can find it in the New Book section at the Main Library.
