New York Times - Jazz in New York City

Celebrate history's greatest jazz musicians through New York Times articles from 1922 to 2016.


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.
