Herman Leonard's photographs of jazz musicians have been crucial in shaping the image of the music. His luminous images of Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, and many others are supreme examples of the photographer's art and a unique record of a musical revolution. In this definitive collection, Leonard retrieved scores of previously unseen photographs, published here alongside his most widely recognized images.
