Description

Experience the inspiration and joy of creation and performance in Jazz in the Bittersweet Blues of Life , an intimate portrait of a unique artist and his audience. Set in the studio, on the stage, and in great cities and small towns across the country, this book captures life on the road for Marsalis and his musicians, evoking its ritual and renewal, energy and spirituality. Describing the art of improvisation, the book’s two voices mirror the interplay at the heart of jazz. “On the road and on the bandstand,” Marsalis writes, “something great may happen at any moment, something that might even change your life.” Alternately luminous and boisterous, often poignant, and always passionate, Marsalis and Vigeland’s extraordinary dialogue is a must for fans, musicians, and anyone curious about America’s only indigenous art form.
