If you ever saw the Disney Aristocats... you'll remember the Cats House.
This book talks about THAT house, where real jazz freaks came to rest and share their passion,
where all the legends of jazz happened to visit and were welcome by the aristocat Lady
who asked them a question as Welcome present.

Amazing insight in the mind of jazz legends and small names of the time...

Three Wishes 29 octobre 2008
Par Stuart Jefferson - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Slightly larger than a trade size book. Soft but substantial cover,305 pages plus index. For those of you who enjoy jazz this is something that should be on your library shelf. As the title infers,a lot of the leading musicians of the day(beginning in 1961 through 1967 in New York) were asked what their three wishes were. The answers are very enlightening and always entertaining. An example is this from Les Spann:"That the people of the world understand each other. That I could look forward to consistent growth of perception till I die. That I could eat chicken as often as I want". Another is this from the bassist John Ore:"To be able to play well. To be all over the world,in good health. To have a time-machine". And this from Stan Getz:"Justice. Truth. Beauty".

The wishes from these musicians give an insight into their lives and their aspirations and outlooks. The photographs,which are very atmospheric, are what really set this book apart from other books about this period. The author,who has quite a few compositions named in her honor, has a unique vantage point and uses it well. They aren't formally composed shots but rather pictures taken very informally. There is a short biography of the author by her grandaughter and an introduction by Gary Giddins. For the jazz lover this book is a cut above because of the rapport between the author and her subjects.

Great Obscure Photographs From The Past 30 janvier 2009
Par Michael L. Slavin - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is, of course, a collection of photographs from the jazz past. Though the images are not dated, it seems that most were taken in the 1950's-70's. There have been a number of books featuring pictures of jazz artists by professional photographers such as William Claxton and Herman Leonard. What I like about these are they are not glamour shots but for the most part they seem to be just candid poses that have not been published previously. The three wishes part of the book seemed to get responses ranging from modest hopes for better mastery of their instruments and more creativity to financial success. Of course most know that Bird died at the Baroness de Koenigswarter's Stanhope apartment. She has had many songs named in her honor such as Nica's Dream and Nica's Tempo. Some of the pictures included are of Pepper Adams, Cannonball, Art Blakey, Roy Brooks, Donald Byrd, Paul Chambers, Sonny Clark, Klook, Trane, Junior Cook, A.T., Walter Davis, Jr., Diz, K.D.,Joe Farrell, Johnny Griffin, Slide Hampton, Bill Hardman, Barry Harris, Hawk, Elmo Hope, Philly Joe Jones, Wynton Kelly, Mingus, Blue Mitchell, Hank Mobley, Lee Morgan, Miles, Monk, Oscar Pettiford, Bud Powell, Freddie Redd, Max Roach,Sonny Rollins, Charlie Rouse, Horace Silver, Sonny Stitt, Clark Terry, Lucky Thompson, Bobby Timmons, Wilbur Ware. The preceeding is truly a list of greats and there are many I didn't mention. Go for it.

A candid look into the jazz greats - photography and philosophy 30 octobre 2008
Par Jazzman1111 - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Nica is a well known name to anyone with a mild interest in jazz, especially modern jazz. Her name features in classic tunes: Nica's Dream, Nica's Tempo, Pannonica and countless others. This book offers some of the most incredible candid photography of those that helped define modern jazz (Thelonious Monk, Barry Harris, Tommy Flannagan, Sonny Clark, Charlie Rouse, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, Coleman Hawkins, John Coltrane, and many more.), and simultaneously lets us into their minds through Nica's asking them for their "3 Wishes". These lists are incredible for their depth, insight and candor from each musician who contributed. A wonderful book told through the eyes of a great patron and friend of the greatest jazz has produced.

Enjoyed the book-- brought back lovely memories of Nica, and the wonderful sessions at her home in Weehawkin, N.J. Her kindness and hospitality were shared by all who knew her. I am quoted in the book, and for the record, I play trumpet (not sax)

There's ONE WISH that may tell the whole story 16 novembre 2009
Par Larry Brill - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
all the quotes are as expected with few, wisdom, health, excellence, family, playing, being remembered, growing, learning, etc... and then there's the ONE WISH from Miles, one wish that says volumes... about Miles, and perhaps about a history of the music and all theose who lived and performed it each day. great pix thru-out, but that one quote is what I will always remember. read it and think.
