French photographer Jean-Pierre Leloir (1931-2010) captured some of the most iconic images of jazz life in France from the 1950s to the 1960s. This book gives ample proof of Leloir’s amazing ability to immortalize performers and to capture candid moments at the airport, backstage, and in the dressing rooms of the most legendary Paris jazz and concert venues.

Among the multiple artists portrayed are Chet Baker, Art Blakey, Donald Byrd, John Coltrane, Sonny Criss, Miles Davis, Eric Dolphy, Kenny Dorham, Bill Evans, Wes Montgomery, Lee Morgan, and Barney Wilen. Most of the photos are never seen before.

Special introduction by the legendary Quincy Jones. Prefaces by French jazz musicians Michel Legrand and Martial Solal, and by jazz historian and critic Ashley Kahn.
