I have fallen in love with a major and important volume on Jazz: Taschen’s “Jazz Life” – A journey for jazz across America in 1960.

Jazz Life book cover This is an incredible read AND even more so, an absolute must for all jazz heads and non for the simple reason that it contains some of the most beautiful, moving photos ever seen.

Photographer William Caxton (1927 – 2008) superbly captures some truly unique moments in jazz.

“Jazz Life” by William Caxton and Joachim E. Berendt is published by Taschen.
