Black Fire! New Spirits!
Available in Stock
The forms of jazz developed during the 1960s and 1970s reflect the revolutionary impact of the civil rights movement, the avant-garde, Black Power and a new spiritual awakening. The intimate photographs in this volume, many of which are given their own page or spread, capture the radicalism and self-confidence of African-American jazz artists, such as John Coltrane and Gil Scott-Heron, who not only broke new ground musically but were determined to defy industry and audience expectations of how they should look and behave.
