Jazz Singers : The Great Song Stylists in Their Own Words
During most of its 70 year history, the "Melody Maker" was considered the bible of not just pop and rock music, but the jazz scene as well. Over the years its writers interviewed virtually every great jazz singer from Billie Holiday to Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett to Peggy Lee. Complementing 20 exclusive interviews with the greatest song stylists of the 20th century - plus brief biographies and details of key recordings - are pictures from some of the world's greatest music photographers including William Claxton, Bob Wiloughby, Herman Leonard, Val Wilmer, Dezo Hoffman, and David Redfern.
