Author(s): Carminati Elena
This title includes a book and 4 CDs. It contains text in German and English. Profound passion and untamed emotion; abject misery and unthinkable ecstasy; the extreme highs and lows of the incredible world of jazz: all this and more in a unique book which combines, from famed Italian photographer Elena Carminati, over 100 gorgeous jazz portraits, with 11 short stories dedicated to some of the world' greatest jazz musicians, written by jazz journalist and author Vittorio Franchini. The photography and verbal imagery, combined with the glorious music included in the 4 accompanying CDs, creates a sublime multi-sensorial experience which will wholly draw you into a jazz-pervaded atmosphere, conjuring up the feeling of sitting in a jazz club on 52nd street or in Harlem during the glory-days of this great art form.
