"Roy DeCarava made the photographs, then conceived, design and wrote The Sound I Saw as a prototype in the 1960s; but it took nearly half a century for the book to finally be published. This legendary work is not just about jazz. It's about the city that more than any other can claim to be the headquarters of jazz--New York--and the environment that nourished this great contribution to the arts: the tenements of Harlem and the vibrant Manhattan streets."--The Photobook : A History Volume II / Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. London : Phaidon, 2004
