Synopsis: The most popular and acclaimed jazz musician and composer of his generation, Wynton Marsalis has brought jazz back to the centre stage in world music. Winning the 1997 Pulitzer Prize in Music has made him the first jazz composer to win this high distinction, one that has been awarded exclusively to classical composers for the past five decades. In this beautiful book Wynton Marsalis lays down his instruments and picks up his pen to capture the smoky intimacy of the late-night jazz club scene.
From Publishers Weekly:
Jazz and classical musician Marsalis's free-ranging text includes characterizations of the musicians in his septet, breezy descriptions of places where they perform and snippets of their lively banter, while Stewart's 140 b&w photos offer a behind-the-scenes look at the performers, their families and their audiences. The book conveys the nervous energy and fast pace that characterize the lives of musicians on the road and includes trenchant accounts of conversations with young followers who want to become musicians. Marsalis's advice is always the same: practice. The self-consciously hip writing, however, becomes incoherent when he discusses his views on romance, politics and the history of jazz. The book will appeal primarily to those who consider Marsalis, a trumpeter and artistic director of Manhattan's Jazz at Lincoln Center, an icon. Author tour.
