Fans of jazz, photography, or both should check out Jazzlife, a lavish coffee table book that collects the 1959-60 work of William Claxton in nearly 700 large-format pages. The Taschen site lists this 17lb. bad boy for $200, but Amazon’s got it for $126. WNYC’s site features a brief slideshow from the book, though the scale of the book brings out the real power of the images.
