Overview

Following the highly acclaimed Wisdom, Andrew Zuckerman now turns his unique photographic perspective to music. This new book includes fifty eminent musicians—artists, composers, producers, and performers from rock, rap, dance, soul, R&B, classical, country, reggae, pop, jazz, world, and more—who have made an impact on their genre, contributed to the larger conversation, and have a unique perspective on life.  

Each musician is photographed and interviewed on film about the process of making music, the power of music, and the experience of writing, producing, and performing. The group includes emerging artists, as well as legends from a variety of genres, and together, they create a distinctive understanding of the universal language of music.  

Music features new portraits of and interviews with Laurie Anderson, Fiona Apple, Afrika Bambaataa, Clint Black, Dave Brubeck, Common, Billy Corgan, David Crosby, Ani DiFranco, Danny Elfman, Ben Gibbard, Philip Glass, Herbie Hancock, Karen O, Kid Rock, Lenny Kravitz, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, Ziggy Marley, Ozzy Osbourne, Yoko Ono, Itzhak Perlman, Iggy Pop, Henry Rollins, Ravi Shankar, John Williams, and several other international music icons. Watch the trailer here: http://musicthebook.com/trailer.php

Editorial Reviews

The portrait photographs and DVD interviews of Andrew Zuckerman's 2008 Wisdom proved to be such popular items that Abrams released its multimedia contents in three separate paperback volumes last Fall. Now the talented photographer, filmmaker, and author (Creature; Bird) turns to music in an equally rich multimedia creation. This book and DVD package feature portraits and interviews with musicians, composers, dancers, and producers from every genre from rap, reggae, and country to rock, jazz, and classical. A gift to remember. (P.S. Some sense of the breadth of this gift book can be gained by browsing the cover list of featured artists.)
