The Art of Jazz
A Visual History
by Alyn Shipton, forward by John Edward Hasse
“This indispensable work of the genre’s art is perfect for jazz aficionados.”
Jazz: energetic, spontaneous, vital. For over a century, this powerful musical style has been synonymous with innovation. It has also inspired sheet music, album art, concert posters, promotional photography, and many standalone works of fine art, leaving an indelible mark on visual arts as a whole.
From the earliest days of the twentieth century to the world of postmodern jazz today, The Art of Jazz presents over 300 images and a suite of authoritative essays on jazz imagery. Perfect for music lovers, art history buffs, students of design, and anyone whose coffee table needs a little jazzing up.
