Jazz In The Key of Light
I’m pleased to announce that my new book, “
azz in the Key of Light”
(Eighty of our Finest Jazz Musicians Speak for Themselves),
self-published in a limited edition on October 15.
his is not your typical fine art photography book. Images of the featured artists, in performance or moments of personal reflection, are paired with illuminating quotes from interviews I had with those musicians in assignments for a variety of mainstream and music publications over the past 30 years.
The spotlighted musicians range from legends Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie and Sarah Vaughan to a variety of today’s rising stars.
Newport Jazz Festival producer George Wein wrote the Foreword.
“Ken has leveraged his backstage pass to bring jazz fans closer to the music’s human source.
Jazz In The Key of Light’s
connection of words and images is a powerful complement to the music, since listeners often have no other statement from artists besides their art. As a result, we feel closer to the musician as a person.”
