With a foreword by legendary jazz pianist Dave Brubeck, American photographer Bob Willoughby's timeless collection of jazz photographs pays homage to the greats who pioneered an unparalleled musical genre. In Jazz: Body and Soul, you'll find unrivaled images of the most famous jazz artists of all time (listed below), as well as never-before-published photographs of inspired performances and backstage jitters. Accompanied by Willoughby's intimate recollections, this is a unique firsthand view of what it was like to experience the golden age of jazz, as part of what Dave Brubeck's son Darius proclaimed "the beginning of the beyond." Whether you're a seasoned jazzer paying tribute to your heroes, a newcomer educating yourself on all the key players, or simply a lover of gorgeous photographs, you'll find Willoughby's collection to be as enduring as the music itself.
