Guy Le Querrec is very famous for his photographies of all the most famous jazzmen. This hefty book can be indeed be seen as a bible of jazz music in so far as it gathers about 375 photographs of mythical personalities from 1962 to 2001. Some are taken while the musicians are on stage, others are moments of their everyday life. But the pictures never fail to conjure up the melodies that Art Blakey, Thelonious Monk, Myriam Makeba, Steve Coleman, Lucky Peterson and others embody.
