Jazz by Ken Burns( Visual )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1955 and 1960 rhythm and blues and rock ' roll erode jazz' audiences but the music still enjoys tremendous creativity. Saxophonist Sonny Rollins and trumpeter Clifford Brown make their marks while Duke Ellington emerges stronger than ever and Miles Davis and John Coltrane make legendary albums. Louis Armstrong jeopardizes his career when he condemns the government for its failure to act on racism in Little Rock, Ark. Drummer Art Blakely and others attempt to win back R & B audiences to jazz. As stars such as Billie Holiday fade out, others such as Sarah Vaughan burn brightly and newcomers such as Ornette Coleman begin to push the music into uncharted territories
Jazz by Ken Burns( Visual )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1960s jazz fragments into the avant-garde and many divided schools of thought. Many jazz musicians like Dexter Gordon are forced to leave America in search of work while other use the music as a form of social protest: Max Roach, Charles Mingus, and Archie Shepp make overtly political musical statements. John Coltrane appeals to a broad audience before his untimely death. Saxophonist Stan Getz helps boost a craze for bossa nova music, but in the early 1970s jazz founders Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington pass away. Miles Davis leads a movement of jazz musicians who incorporate elements of rock and soul into their music and "fusion" wins listeners. By the mid-1980's jazz begins to bounce back led by Wynton Marsalis and a new generation of musicians. Now as it approaches its centennial, jazz is still alive, still changing and still swinging

Bert Stern : Original Mad Man by Bert Stern( Visual )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bert Stern: original mad man is the definitive voyage into the life and work of one of the greatest American photographers of all time. An original Madison Avenue "mad man," Stern's images helped create modern advertising; his ground-breaking campaign for Smirnoff forever changed the industry. The iconic photos he took of celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Audrey Hepburn, Shirley MacLaine, Sophia Loren, Twiggy, and the infamous Lolita image from Kubrick's film, minted Stern - along with Irving Penn and Richard Avedon - as a celebrity in his own right. Indeed, his photos from Monroe's "Last Sitting" are considered to be the ultimate images of the 20th century icon. After marrying legendary ballet dancer and Balanchine muse Allegra Kent, the kid from Brooklyn was sitting on top of the world ... until a dramatic fall from grace. Featuring Bert Stern, Allegra Kent, Twiggy Lawson, Jerry Della Femina, Judith Crist, George Wein & more
