Publisher Comments:

The sights and sounds of American jazz In 1959 and 1960, photographer William Claxton and noted German musicologist Joachim Berendt traveled the United States hot on the trail of jazz music. The result of their collaboration was an amazing collection of photographs and recordings of legendary artists as well as unknown street musicians. The book Jazzlife, the original fruit of their labors, has become a collector's item that is highly treasured among jazz and photography fans. In 2003, TASCHEN began reassembling this important collection of material?along with many never-before-seen color images from those trips. They are brought together in this updated volume, which includes a foreword by Claxton tracing his travels with Berendt and his love affair with jazz music in general. Utilizing the benefits of today's digital technology, a restored audio CD from Joachim Berendt's original recordings has been produced and is included in this package. Jazz fans will be delighted to

Eli Marcus, March 29, 2008 (view all comments by Eli Marcus)
This book is an amazing collaboration between one of the best writers on Jazz that the 20th century produced, and one of the finest photographers of the Jazz era of the 50's and 60's.
It is rare to find a monograph of this nature that combines both sensitive and high quality imagery together with poignant and intelligent writing that goes far beyond a simple background description of the images. This book is just as important for the textual story it contains as for it's rich photographic imagery.
