Saxophone colossus saxophone Colossus A Portrait of Sonny Rollins

By Bob Gruen Introduction by Debbie Harry

Photography by John Abbott Text by Bob Blumenthal

From taking early photos on tour with Ike and Tina Turner to capturing the early CBGB/Max’s Kansas City scene and covering current stadium rockers such as Green Day, Gruen has always gotten the shot. Here, he has curated his favorite photographs from his career, with intimate captions and behind-the-scenes anecdotes, featuring such illustrious acts as the Clash, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Sex Pistols, Ramones, and more. 250 color photos, 288 pages, 10×12".

This intimate appreciation in pictures and words combines the images of Rollins’s photographer of choice for the past 20 years—who has captured the saxophonist at home and at work—and the essays of the jazz critic who has chronicled Rollins and his art for nearly four decades. 75 color photos, 160 pages, 8½×10¼".

Plisson’s remarkable images capture the ocean’s drama and power, and provide glimpses of life in seaside communities.

This edition, the first since 1940 to be reproduced from Szyk’s original art, boasts a newly commissioned and extremely practical English text by Rabbi Byron L. Sherwin, ideal for use at any family Seder, and a special commentary section that gives insight into both the rituals of the Seder and Szyk’s rich illustrations.
