In Jazz: Body and Soul, you'll find unrivaled images of the most famous jazz artists of all time (listed below), as well as never-before-published photographs of inspired performances and backstage jitters. Accompanied by Willoughby's intimate recollections, this is a unique firsthand view of what it was like to experience the golden age of jazz, as part of what Dave Brubeck's son Darius proclaimed "the beginning of the beyond."
