Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The impulse to do American Music, writes famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, "came from a desire to return to my original subject and look at it with a mature eye. Bring my experience to it...make it a real American tapestry." Her ambitious idea became American Music, a stunning collection of photographs of the musicians, places, and people that enrich the landscape of American music.

As Rolling Stone's chief photographer for over thirteen years, Leibovitz created a legendary body of work. Her portraits of some of the world's most talented musicians capture more than the performer, they convey the art of making music. For American Music, Leibovitz traveled across the country to juke joints in the Mississippi Delta, honkytonks in Texas, and jazz clubs in New Orleans "to take pictures in places that mean something." In her signature style, she shares stunning portraits of American greats — B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, Beck, Bob Dylan, Mary J. Blige, Jon Bon Jovi, Steve Earle, Ryan Adams, Miles Davis, Etta James, Pete Seeger, Emmylou Harris, Tom Waits, The Dixie Chicks, Dr. Dre, The Roots and many more.

American Music includes a commentary about the American Music project by Leibovitz, short essays by musicians Patti Smith, Rosanne Cash, Steve Earle, Mos Def, Ryan Adams, and Beck, as well as biographical sketches of all the musicians.

Review:

"[Leibovitz] explores more deeply than ever the landscape of America's sound, from a New Orleans funeral to a Baptist church to an empty juke joint." Vanity Fair

Review:

"Leibovitz's approach to both celebrity and non-celebrity musicians is remarkably consistent....[Her] conception of glamour is anything but aloof. She situates her subjects right there in front of you." The New York Times

Synopsis:

The famed photographer delivers this stunning collection of photos of the musicians, places, and people that enrich the landscape of American music.
