This collection of 300 unique photographs, many of them previously unpublished, is treat for jazz-lovers and comes as a fitting tribute both to the golden age of jazz and to Timme Rosenkrantz, the prominent figure of Danish jazz, who stands behind the collection and who in his way embodied the spirit of that age. The book contains portraits of such well-known musicians as Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday and Glenn Miller. Just as much space, however, is given to names which are less well-known today.
Praise for the above book in the Danish press:
"... do go out and buy this book: it’s a treat browsing through the pages, and furthermore the book is a goldmine on encyclopedical information on musicans normally hard to come by. Bravo!" Per Calum in Morgenavisen Jyllands-Posten
"This book is an emotional ride for all of us, who once fell in love with the blue notes. For God’s sake: Do not read this book on it’s own. Put on your favorit music, tap your foot..." Ole Lindboe in Aktuelt
