Jazzlife by photographer William Claxton and noted musicologist Joachim Berendt traveled the United States hot on the trail of jazz in 1960. These two artists sought to document this living, breathing, beating musical phenomenon that captured the heart of America across social, economic, and racial lines, through music halls and marching bands, side streets and subways. The result of Claxton and Berendt’s work was Jazzlife, much sought after by collectors and now revived in this fresh TASCHEN music book collection. From coast to coast, from unknown street performers to legends of the genre, this defining jazz journey explores just what made up this most original of American art forms. This jazz collection shows the music makers and the many spaces and people this music touched, with images of Charlie Parker, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Gabor Szabo, Dave Brubeck, Stan Getz, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, and many more.
