FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Reel Art Press is proud to present Jazz Festival: Jim Marshall, a perfect tribute to the legendary photographer. Containing 95 percent previously unseen images, the book captures the freedom, the excitement and the intimacy of the Newport and Monterey Jazz Festivals of the 1960s. All of the Jazz Icons are here; Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Wes Mongomery, Ben Webster, Nina Simone, Theolonious Monk, John Coltrane and so many more.
Marshall’s inimitable lens immortalized them all, and his unrestricted access meant that he got the shots others only dreamed about. Effortlessly cool, they capture not only the thrill of the performers and their private, unguarded moments but the unique atmosphere and sense of lightness and openness among the crowd: old, young, black, white.
