I have collaborated with the Spanish writer Belen Carmona Moreno who has offered her literary writings to the 123 photographs in black and white of jazz musicians across the pages.
An important detail, even if the photographs are in an universal lenguage, the texts are in spanish and you will find an example below of one the texts.
Another important detail, this book is not about stars of jazz music but it's overall a tribute to the jazz musicians that's why you will not find only photographs of stars as Ornette Coleman or Joshua Redman but also photographs of unknown or underrated musicians I admire. That's a tribute to all the jazz musicians.
Where you can order the book ?
Here you have one the photographs and texts included on the book. That's a photograph of the fantastic french cornettist Médéric Collignon.
Finally, please find below a promotional video with the 123 photographs of "Estelas de Jazz"
