Jazz Memories photos book and 2CDs compilation box-set
(the ideal Jazz gift idea)
Music of the Jazz Masters and classic Herman Leonard photos combine for a canít miss double disc musical anthology. No photographer has better captured the music's creators than the brilliant Herman Leonard, whose breathtaking portraits make "Jazz Memories," an absolute essential for collectors and newcomers alike. The beautiful 72 page 8"x10" book that accompanies the 2-CD set includes 35 full-page photographs of the jazz immortals who are featured. Each photograph is accompanied by fascinating stories that provide considerable insight both into the musician and the circumstances surrounding each particular recording. The array of featured artists is astonishing - Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Lester Young, Sonny Rollins, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Carter, Gerry Mulligan, Milt Jackson... and the list goes on. These incredible recordings have been culled from the vaults of such major jazz labels as Verve, Blue Note, Riverside, Prestige and Emarcy. On its own, this collection would be a fine addition to any library, but with the book, it's an absolute necessity. The photographs include some of Leonard's most memorable and important portraits
