"IN THE SPIRIT OF SWING : THE FIRST 25 YEARS OF JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER"

January 15, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

For early to mid 2012, I was working on this book, "IN THE SPIRIT OF SWING", celebrating the 25th year anniversary of Jazz at Lincoln Center. Jazz at Lincoln Center's senior staff photographer, Frank Stewart, and the Artistic Director, Wynton Marsalis, was the photo editor for the project and I was the assistant photo editor. (And I have to mention that not only I went through 25 years of photographs at JALC, I also scanned tons of films and cleaned up each file so they can be printed for this book...) While working on this project, I was basically working as soon as I got up until 5 minutes before going to bed 24/7. The book proceeds with Wynton's narration to introduce each writer who talk about the concerts in the history of JALC, the back stage side of the shows and the musicians who played there. Writers are the musicians who are closely related to JALC and some others are the board members and workers at JALC. Not only because of the writing part of the book, the photographs on Jazz by various great photographers are also the reason why this book is a must-see (photographers such as Frank Stewart, Bill May, Julie Skarratt, Jack Vartoogian, Petra Richterova and Brad Feinknopf. Some of my photographs are used in the book, too :) If you like Jazz, or even music in general, I would strongly recommend this book. I am sure you will enjoy this book! (You can purchase the book from this link on amazon)
