About this title

Synopsis:

"Looking at these beautiful photos evokes a warm remembrance of times gone by. Many of the musicians were friends of mine, and thinking of the lives of these great men and women, devoted to their art, reminds me of the fine jazz they played. The short biography of each musician, like a mini–jazz history, serves to illuminate lives that were filled with music, which still echoes in our hearts and minds." —Marian McPartland, host of NPR’s Piano Jazz

Jazz in Black and White collects Duncan Schiedt’s classic black-and-white photographs of some of the world’s most famous jazz musicians. Each photograph is introduced by a brief biographical summary of the artist, along with a memoir about the photograph’s creation that gives the reader a sense of "having been there." Included are Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Wes Montgomery, Mary Lou Williams, Lester Young, and Thelonious Monk.

About the Author:

Duncan Schiedt has photographed jazz musicians for 60 years. He is the author of several books, including The Jazz State of Indiana and Twelve Lives in Jazz, and is co-author with Ed Kirkeby and Sinclair Traill of "Ain’t Misbehavin’": The Story of Fats Waller. Schiedt’s original and archival photographs were featured in Ken Burns’s landmark PBS series Jazz, and his work has appeared in international art exhibits and publications worldwide. He lives in Pittsboro, Indiana.
