Read full description of the books Natura morta con custodia di sax: storie di jazz:Durante un lungo viaggio "on the road" in compagnia del suo autista baritono, Duke Ellington pensa, ricorda, progetta e compone. Dalle sue riflessioni e fantasie prendono forma sette narrazioni indipendenti su altrettanti musicisti jazz: Lester Young, Thelonious Monk, Bud Powell, Charlie Mingus, Ben Webster, Chet Baker, Art Pepper. Completano il libro, facendone una vera e propria guida all'ascolto del jazz, un capitolo teorico (per spiegare le origini multietniche di questo fenomeno artistico centrale nella cultura del '900), e una ricca appendice discografica.
