About this title


Book by Tanner, Lee, Tanner, L. E.

From Booklist:

Tanner's excellent photographs of jazz musicians have appeared on an abundance of books and record covers through the years, and this collection of his best work clearly shows him to be one of the music's finest visual chroniclers. It gathers four decades' worth of striking black-and-white images, including pictures of many legends, taken mostly during public performances and recording sessions. Perhaps Tanner's day jobs in materials-science research made him such an expert in creating vivid art in what must have been challenging lighting situations. Anyway, his classic photos of Thelonious Monk's hands say more about the great composer's approach to the piano than pages of verbal description. An upward look at Ben Webster is almost as dramatic as his tenor solos. Tanner's Dizzy Gillespie, unusually serene during a mid-'60s TV appearance, seems to capture a previously unexplored facet of this musical icon. Other shots do as much for their subjects. Tanner's own succinct notes explain the significance of each musician. Aaron Cohen
