US-American photographer William CLAXTON began his career shooting jazz record cover art. He worked for many of the biggest publishers including Life, Paris Match, and Vogue magazines. The out-of-print photo volume 'New Orleans 1960' is a love letter to the birthplace of Jazz, New Orleans. This city will never again appear as it does in these rare and stunning photographs he took for 'Jazzlife' by Joachim E Berendt in 1960. While traveling around the United States of America with the musicologist to record America's original art form, he met and photographed the jazz personalities in every major and minor city, capturing these musicians in their natural environment.
