Editorial Reviews

Review

“A beautiful artifact, the book evokes, in words and pictures, the Los Angeles jazz scene of the early-to-mid 1950s as vividly as Francis Wolff's work in New York nails East Coast hard bop.” - AllAboutJazz.com



"Willoughby’s jazz photos are evocative and resonant, sometimes spectacularly so... a handsome realization of a project the photographer was working on…Together they add up to a revealing snapshot of a serious artist at the top of his game.” - JAZZIZ

You probably have seen some of these iconic B & W photographs of Chet Baker. Gerry Mulligan and others asking yourself..."where have I seen that before" or, "who took that shot"? The answer from the West Coast of the 50's usually brings to mind the celebrated William Claxton or, Ray Avery. Finally, the artistry of photographer Bob Willoughby can be appreciated by a wider audience. These images of jazz artists captured within the stylish slip sleeve case is a must for jazz fans or, those who appreciate fine photography. Willoughby like Claxton, Herman Leonard, Avery and, Chuck Stewart captured the moment usually in performance or, the studio with a very relaxed style. You almost feel present in company with the artist which is a unique experience. "Jazz: Body and Soul" is beautifully packaged,contains interesting profiles of each subject and, best of all, is a great buy at the purchase price. A welcome addition to the collection of the dedicated jazz fan as well as an introduction to the novice of an important period in jazz history. Unfortunately, Bob Willoughby did not live to see it published but, his art remains to tell his story for generations to come.

Take a trip back in time before itunes, internet radio,or beat machines even existed. Bob Wolloughby's collection of timeless photos captures the essence of jazz during a time when musicians actually played their instruments by hand. It was a sophisticated, and elegant time in musical history and Bob shares the whole story. This collection is by far one of the best I've seen, Bob has highlighted jazz during a pivitol moment when the sound of jazz was important. Put on your favorite classic jazz tunes and begin flipping through the pages of these amazing images, you'll feel like you're right there!

The recipient let me know he liked it, especially the forward by Dave Brubeck. I'd buy it again for another jazz lover.
