#JazzBluesFlorida #jazz #blues #Florida #Concerts #Festivals #Clubs

Herb Snitzer, of St. Petersburg, Florida, has been a fine art photographer for more than fifty years. His work has been featured in numerous museums, magazines, exhibitions, and books.

This book includes Snitzer's very best jazz photographs. He reveals the essences of the artists, their struggles, joys, and pains. A number of Snitzer's jazz images have become iconic, including Louis Armstrong with the Star of David, Lester Young at the Five Spot Café in New York City, John Coltrane reflected in a mirror, Thelonious Monk with piano keys reflected in his sunglasses, and Miles Davis at Newport. With eighty-five black and white images of jazz giants, Glorious Days and Nights provides a long-awaited testimony to the friendships and artistry that Snitzer developed over his remarkable career.

A major exhibition of Snitzer's work is at the Tampa Museum of Art until May 15, 2011.
