Meet the Author

Carol Friedman, a New York portrait photographer who specializes in photographs of people in the arts, has been widely published in books and magazines here and abroad, and her classic photographs of recording artists appear on hundreds of jazz, soul, and classical CD covers. Friedman conceived her first children’s book, Nicky The Jazz Cat (powerHouse kids, 2005), as an homage to her magnificent cat Nicky and the one-of-a-kind jazz musicians who continue to inspire her work.

The original Nicky book led to a book and music series which includes companion music CDs featuring child-friendly jazz by renowned musicians. The Nicky collection has garnered numerous awards, including the Benjamin Franklin Book Award, iParenting Media Book and Music Awards, Parents’ Choice Silver Honor Award, NAPPA Book Award, and the American Library Association’s Notable Children’s Recording Award.

Author of The Jazz Pictures, (Arena, 1999) the critically acclaimed retrospective of her photographs of jazz artists, Friedman is working on a new collection of portraits, and directing and producing a documentary feature film on singer Abbey Lincoln. She is a volunteer author with Learning Leaders, Authors Read Aloud, and frequently reads Nicky The Jazz Cat to public school classes throughout New York.
