In the spirit of swing







  In the Spirit of Swing é um livro que recomendo com fotos de Frank Stewart e documentos dos arquivos do JALC's, escrito por Wynton Marsalis. Atores e músicos são registrados com suas diferentes personalidades, como a Duke Ellington Big Band, Betty Carter, Abbey Lincoln, Tony Bennett, Al Roker, Nick Ashford, Valerie Simpson, Laurence Fishburne, Robin Williams, Toni Morrison, Liza Minelli, Diana Ross, BB King , Eric Clapton e outros.

 "Jazz can provide musicians and listeners alike with a sense of self, a concept of romance, a more comfortable physicality, a deeper understanding 
of other human beings. It is an endless road of discovery leading to more maturity and acceptance of personal responsibility, a greater respect for cultures around the world, an invigorating playfulness, an excitement about change, and an appetite for the unpredictable". WM
