En 1960, le photographe William Claxton et le célèbre musicologue Joachim Berendt ont parcouru les Etats-Unis sur la piste du jazz. De comédies musicales en fanfares, de ruelles en sous-sols, ils cherchent à témoigner de ce phénomène musical vivant, expressif et énergique qui fascine toute l'Amérique au-delà des barrières sociales, économiques et raciales. Fruit de la collaboration entre Claxton et Berendt, Jazzlife a été ardemment recherché par les collectionneurs et est désormais disponible dans ce nouvel ouvrage des éditions TASCHEN. D'un bout à l'autre du pays, depuis les musiciens de rue inconnus jusqu'aux immenses légendes du genre, cet incontournable voyage à travers le jazz explore précisément ce qui en fait l'une des formes d'art américaine les plus originales. A la Nouvelle-Orléans et à New York, à Saint-Louis, Biloxi, Jackson et ailleurs, les clichés passionnés mais pleins de douceur de Claxton, ainsi que les textes qui les accompagnent, abordent le jazz dans toute sa diversité autant que dans sa vitalité constante et son âme. Ils montrent les musiciens, mais aussi tous les lieux et les gens touchés par cette musique : cortèges funèbres et scènes de concert, trompettiste vétéran et enfants agglutinés derrière les vitres au passage d'un orchestre. A travers des clichés montrant Charlie Parker, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Muddy Waters, Gabor Szabo, Dave Brubeck, Stan Getz, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane et bien d'autres, cet ouvrage évoque autant un fascinant pan d'Histoire qu'un hommage personnel sensible.

"The final novel in this masterly series. We’d hate to lose this Nottingham policeman whose love of jazz distinguishes him as the mellowest of detectives.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review Thirty years ago, the British Miners’ Strike threatened to tear england apart, turning neighbor against neighbor, husband against wife, father against son—enmities which still smolder. Charlie Resnick, recently promoted to Detective Inspector and ambivalent, at best, about some of the police tactics used in the Strike, had run a surveillance-gathering unit at the heart of the dispute. Now, in virtual retirement, the discovery of the body of a young woman who disappeared during the Strike brings Resnick back to the front line to assist in the investigation into the woman’s murder—forcing him to confront his past—in what will assuredly be his last case . . . as well as John’s Harvey’s final Charlie Resnick novel.

"In The Return of Jazz, Andrew Wright Hurley has admirably demonstrated Berendt's influence upon the emerging jazz scene of the early Federal Republic. Hurley shows how Cold War politics and rejection of the National Socialist past heightened Berendt's sense of mission. For Berendt, jazz was more than an avocation; it was a program for social and cultural reform. It is to Hurley's credit that he raises so many important issues surrounding jazz's development in the second half of the twentieth century." - H-German "This is a benchmark study, in showing why a subject that has been overlooked in jazz historiography should not have been. Its importance lies not just in recognising the importance of a major mediator and 'enabler' of postwar jazz; it also models the late twentieth century shift of the jazz centre of gravity away from the US and towards international fusions. In its balancing of cultural theory with the most painstaking empirical research this is, quite simply, essential reading not just in jazz scholarship, but in the larger field of cultural history and its methodologies." - Bruce Johnson Cultural History, University of Turku Jazz has had a peculiar and fascinating history in Germany. The influential but controversial German writer, broadcaster, and record producer, Joachim-Ernst Berendt (1922-2000), author of the world's best-selling jazz book, labored to legitimize jazz in West Germany after its ideological renunciation during the Nazi era. German musicians began, in a highly productive way, to question their all-too-eager adoption of American culture and how they sought to make valid artistic statements reflecting their identity as Europeans. This book explores the significance of some of Berendt's most important writings and record productions. Particular attention is given to the "Jazz Meets the World" encounters that he engineered with musicians from Japan, Tunisia, Brazil, Indonesia, and India. This proto-"world music" demonstrates how some West Germans went about creating a post-nationalist identity after the Third Reich. Berendt's powerful role as the West German "Jazz Pope" is explored, as is the groundswell of criticism directed at him in the wake of 1968.
