Throughout his career, Turner has relentlessly pushed the medium of photography to achieve an extraordinary vision with an uncompromising thirst for bold color and composition. Yet Turner feels that "what really kept my name out there were these record covers." This book showcases 100 covers and their art in close to original size; many of the covers are rare and out-of-print, now collector's items, and connect to a who's who of musical legends—from Count Basie, John Coltrane, and Stan Getz, to Quincy Jones, Freddie Hubbard, and Steely Dan. Turner's covers set new standards for this medium and transformed albums into art objects, sought after both for the music they contain and the cover art they display.

About the Author:

Pete Turner's award-winning photographs have appeared in National Geographic, Esquire, and Sports Illustrated among others, and have appeared at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Quincy Jones is a cultural icon, and the most nominated Grammy artist for his work as a musician and producer. Ashley Kahn is the author of A Love Supreme: The Story of John Coltrane's Signature Album. Creed Taylor is legendary for his CTI label of the 1970s, and an important part of the music industry since the 1950s.

Review:

"The best of Turner's classic album photographs are gathered in his third monograph, The Color of Jazz (Rizzoli, $45), which includes a foreword by music legend Quincy Jones and an afterword by Creed Taylor, who recorded jazz greats from Charles Mingus to Wes Montgomery. Concurrent with the book's publication, the George Eastman House museum in Rochester, New York, will be the venue for an extraordinary retrospective..." -- Sep 06 AMERICAN PHOTO

Pictures from his five-decade career, with their stunning colors and abstract compositions have appeared in magazines like Esquire and Look, but his work might be best known to an audience with a different focus: Jazz." "The photographer's generous, enthusiastic captions detail the behind-the-scenes creative production, which in the case of art is often fascinating..." -- Dec06 NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

"With almost a hundred displayed in the distinctive Turner range of glorious, glowin gcolors, and with meaty captions that hold little anedotes about each one, The Color of Jazz is a great tribute both to this prolific photographer, as well as the stellar musicians whose albums got a well-needed boost in sales by having a Pete Turner photo on the cover. -- Mar07 COMMUNICATION ARTS

"On August 23, 2006, I had the wonderful opportunity to interview legendary color photographer Pete Turner. There are few photographers who leave such a powerful, lasting and unforgettable impression in any genre of photography." -- 03/01/07 RANGEFINDER

-- "two iconic jazz labels from the '60s and 70's were the subjects of two impressive books, both of which had the fingerprints of Jazz Times contributor Ashley Kahn...An oversized coffee-table book that celebrates the colorful photos used most famously for the covers of Creed Taylor's CTI record label." -- Jan07 JAZZ TIMES MAGAZINE
