Item Description...
With a camera as his backstage pass, Herman Leonard has photographed the giants of jazz in their golden age, movie stars on sets and on their travels to exotic places, the fashion world of Paris in the 1960s, and the inner sanctums of his beloved New Orleans.
His friendships with the jazz greats allowed him to capture the magical moments of the New York and Paris jazz clubs in the 1940s and 1950s, using his unique command of cinematic lighting to capture the essence of time. His colorful life and travels enabled him to document the cultural icons of his day, with images such as Marilyn Monroe on a elephant in the circus, and Albert Einstein at his desk.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Just buy it!  Jun 16, 2008
If you're a fan of jazz or photography, this is the book for you. Lovely rich photo reproduction and pictures of the jazz greats - often behind the scenes - that make you feel as though you were there.
One of the Great Photographers of our Time  Apr 25, 2007
Herman Leonard is by far one of the best photographers I have ever had the privilege to come across. I was visiting New Orleans a few weeks ago and came across a documentary on the local Louisiana station, it was a documentary on Leonard. If you ever have the chance to view this please do so because its an amazing story about a remarkable man. Generally, it takes a great deal to inspire me to want to study portraits, for me portraits are the most complex images to appreciate with the passage of time. Yet with Leonard's images (including his commercial works,) you can sit down and study them and you still find inspiration in them over and over again. His work is one of a kind, and his vision is the strongest I have ever seen in a photographer.
Jazz Photography by Herman Leonard  Feb 15, 2007
Herman Leonard brings one back to a time in America that no longer exists in a way that makes one feel a part of what was. You can almost hear the music!
Jazz Lovers Rejoice  Dec 17, 2006
Looking for a gift for a jazz lover, photography buff or international
HERMAN LEONARD is a mind-blower. The meticulously detailed photos of jazz
greats like Miles Davis, Dexter Gordon, Billie Holliday, Quincy Jones and
others recreate the essence of an era so well that the viewer can actually
see, hear and smell the flavor of the 40's and 50's NY jazz venues where
the musicians played. Included in this wonderful book is a photo of the
great Buddhas of Bamiyan in Afghanistan, taken in 1970, long before they
were blown up by the Taliban. This alone makes the book vital.
