Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Willoughby’s jazz photos are evocative and resonant, sometimes spectacularly so... a handsome realization of a project the photographer was working on…Together they add up to a revealing snapshot of a serious artist at the top of his game.” - JAZZIZ

“A beautiful artifact, the book evokes, in words and pictures, the Los Angeles jazz scene of the early-to-mid 1950s as vividly as Francis Wolff's work in New York nails East Coast hard bop.” - AllAboutJazz.com
