    1. Awesome. Leaves William Claxton choking in the dust. Wolff's shot of John Patton--at piano, his sweat-gemmed face, shut eyes and slightly parted lips set on a giant white turtle neck sweater--is up there with Avedon's 1955 Marian Anderson as a timeless image of ecstatic musical transport.

    2. This is an amazing collection of black & white photos depicting jazz musicians who recorded for the Blue Note record label. It's a must-see for all jazz fans -- definitely one of those "you've gotta see it to believe it" kind of books!
