Take the A Train

From Billie Holiday's first solo show at Carnegie Hall in 1946 ("one of the best jazz concerts," read the review) to the time Herbie Hancock formed his own band at the Village Vanguard ("I don't want to be Miles Davis' piano player for the rest of my life") in 1968, New York City has played host to history's greatest jazz musicians. This coffee table book celebrates them—and the illustrious venues they've played—through a collection of New York Times articles from 1922 to 2016. The book is organized into three sections including Jazz History, Jazz Greats, and Jazz Joints, and Al Hirschfeld's iconic cover illustration captures the passionate, expressive nature of the real-life characters within. Made in Williston, Vermont.

Should Come With Microscope

A great idea for music lovers but very poorly printed. Many newspaper clips are unreadable due to blurry reproductions or microscopic type size. Reminds me of the days of microfiche.
