Format: Hardcover
Incredible photographs, certainly, and a remarkably poignant memoir! If you love jazz, photographer Herb Snitzer's book, "Glorious Days and Nights, A Jazz Memoir" is a `must'.

Full disclosure: Herb is a friend, I own a couple of his photos, and I've had the privilege of viewing parts of his portfolio over the years. I was prepared for the wonderful images in the book and those I saw on display recently at the Gallery Kayafas in Boston. The surprise was the narrative: poignant, intimate, thoughtful, insightful and in own Herb's voice.

Herb was fortunate to have had access to the jazz milieu at a time when one could get close to musicians both professionally (the book's jacket photo of the piano keys reflected in Thelonious Monk's glasses) and personally (his amusing tale of being `whupped' in a ping-pong match with the artist at the home of an heiress). Like many in my generation, I was introduced to jazz in the 50's and 60's via recordings including "Jazz Goes to College", "Kind of Blue", "Giant Steps", "No Sun In Venice", and was able to experience many of the artists live, in intimate settings. For me, Herb's visual and narrative 'back stories' of the performers, his personal friendships with them, their performances and the times, are a delightful return and wonderful augmentation of my musical youth. For those who have recently (or relatively recently?) become fans of jazz, this memoir will be an insightful insider's view of an era that has sadly passed and/or a valuable addition to the music you have collected.

Well done and thanks, Herb.

I gave this book as a gift to a friend who loves jazz and jazz history. He was actually visibly moved by the gift - I was touched. Photographs capture moments in time that become memories for some and legends for others. A true jazz enthusiast will LOVE this book.

I purchased this book based on the previous review, for a beloved relative who is both a Jazz lover & Jazz scholar (I count myself as the former, but not the latter.) He loves it & is full of praise for this book, as is his musician wife. The photographs are stunning and the accompanying stories are engaging and entertaining. Let's just say I made lots of "points" with my relative :-)

This is a fabulous book right up there with many of the other
wonderful photographers that were smart enough to take
pictures of the giants of Jazz.
