Acurator Magazine: "Jazz Festival" good bet for music lovers

Oh yeah - Reel Art Press does it again! The Estate of Jim Marshall is pleased to announce the launch of "Jim Marshall: Jazz Festival" (Reel Art Press, September, 2016). We lost a true hard-working character when Jim died, and we thank Amelia Davis for her dedication to keeping his work out there, and editing such a rich and fabulous book (and for letting me make an edit for this story! Thank you!) The book covers six years of Monterey and Newport Jazz Festivals, on stage and behind the scenes, and is chock-a-block with pics.

In time for the holidays this is a good bet for music lovers and those interested in jazz and its history.

Update! Amelia Davis & David Gans talk 'Jazz Festival' on SiriusXM

Mark your calendar for Sunday, October 30. In Tales from the Golden Road on the Grateful Dead Channel of SiriusXM, Amelia Davis (award-winning photographer and owner of Jim Marshall Photography LLC), David Gans (musician, music journalist, and friend of Jim Marshall), and Gary Lambert (musician and editor/writer of the Grateful Dead's official newsletter) talk about Jim, jazz, jamming, and "Jazz Festival," Jim's new, acclaimed photojournal of '60s jazz greats.

Why "jamming"? The influences of jazz on rock music runs deep. For instance, the jam session, a jazz staple since the 1920s, has been utilized in performances by many rock bands, including Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead.

Marin IJ: Jim Marshall captures jazz’s golden age in new book

By Paul Liberatore, Marin Independent Journal

Whenever there’s mention of the work of the late San Francisco photographer Jim Marshall, the first thing most people think of is rock ’n’ roll. A pioneering rock photographer, he was famous for his iconic images of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, the Grateful Dead and many other bands and musicians from the heyday of rock in the late 1960s and ’70s.

But he actually began his career in 1959 and ’60, shooting black-and-white photos of jazz musicians at the Monterey and Newport jazz festivals with his ever-present Leica camera. Many of those photos, including a number of current and erstwhile Marin residents, are collected for the first time in a weighty new coffee table book, “Jazz Festival” (Reel Art Press, $75), covering the years 1960 through ’66. The majority of them have never been seen before by the public.

CNN Reviews "Jazz Festival"

By John Blake, CNN

"Jazz is dead."

Jazz connoisseurs have been hearing that eulogy for at least half a century. They're a picky bunch, often complaining about the quality of contemporary jazz while pointing to some golden era when "real" jazz thrived.But if jazz did indeed die, what was the cause of death, and when did it pass away?

A new book, "Jazz Festival: Jim Marshall," offers some possible answers. It features a handsome collection of black-and-white photos of jazz icons playing for and mingling with the glamorous crowds at the Monterey Jazz Festival in the early 1960s. The photos were taken by the legendary music photographer Jim Marshall, who captured those final summers when jazz was still widely popular -- and when it started to lose its commercial appeal.

The intimacy of the photographs is palpable. There's one of... more
