An ABC for Jazz Lovers

Whether it‘s under spotlights or in the privacy of a dressing room, in rehearsal rooms or in the thick of major international tours, Pascal Kober’s pictures reveal a special way of looking at things, which also plays cleverly with words.

As a French photojournalist and member of the magazine Jazz Hot team, he has witnessed the developments of an extraordinarily rich and diverse century-old form of music for several decades now. Love of the blue note, emotion and complicity mark these commented slices of life, these letters and these faces, which sketch a thoroughly human ABC, thanks to the exceptionally close rapport he establishes with the musicians.

For those who love jazz and for those who think… they don’t (!), here is a compilation of little gems which are sure to enchant you…

Jazz as you’ve never seen it before !
