Book Description

Oct. 15 2010
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:

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous pics, inspiring interviews Nov. 22 2010
By Rlo
The photos are kept simple and it really works. Interviews to me are the best part because you can feel the artists' passion for their music and for music in general. It's really inspiring and sometimes even moving reading them and watching the film...
A must buy for music lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music (Abrams) Nov. 24 2010
By BlogOnBooks - Published on
More often than not, a big book on music excels at one of two things - photography or text - but almost never both at once. "Music" by photographer Andrew Zuckerman (Abrams) is the exception. The latest in the series of big, topic-related Zuckerman volumes (his last was entitled "Wisdom"), "Music" combines the thoughts and images of fifty top music-makers from all ends of the spectrum.

Classic rockers (including David Crosby and cover boy Ozzy Osborne) to new wavers (Joe Jackson and Chrissie Hynde) are covered along side rappers (Afrika Bambaata to Common), traditionalists (Burt Bacharach) jazzheads (Ornette Coleman, Dave Brubeck and Herbie Hancock) and outliers (such as Philip Glass and Ravi Shankar) in a clean photo style with full page, self-penned essays to accompany the photos (or is it the other way around?)

What comes across, is one of the best, multi-artist synopsis of the inner-workings of the musician's art available in today's music book market. While the photo set-ups are very stark and similar in nature (utilizing the same basic white backdrop in shoots from London to L.A.) it is the written portraits that vary in degree and nature, but that all provide a window into the process and motivation of each of the performers involved. In fact, despite what looks like a coffee table photobook, it is actually the essays that bring the project to life. Learning what motivates an Ani DiFranco to remain independent, why Billy Corgan never practiced once he went pro or how Sinead O'Connor views her own controversial history are what make these stories great. Given the list of possible candidates for a project like this (where is Elvis Costello?), the only thing this format begs for is more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Variations of music Dec 19 2010
By wogan - Published on
This very large, heavy coffee table book will give you a huge range of photos and short interviews with musicians, composers and music producers of today. Fifty artists are presented in alphabetical order from Trey Anastasio ending with John Williams. In between you will find Afrika Bambaataa, Clint Black, Ani DiFranco, Iggy Pop, Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller among others.
There are one and sometimes two very close up, blunt pictures of each artist. Their interviews range from  page to 2 1/2 pages where they ruminate on their music, their lives and sometimes their beliefs. There are 2 pages of small pictures at the end of each artist at their portrait session and biographies on them. There is a one time access code to download the feature film, `Music' by Andrew Zuckerman included.

This is such a wide collaboration that it would interest many music lovers.

I enjoyed the book. It listed some artists that I was really interested in reading about. I learned some new things about my favorite artists. It's a good coffee book to have to catch up on what make musicians tick.
