Andrew Zuckerman
Hachette-PQ Blackwell - $80

Following the highly acclaimed Wisdom, Andrew Zuckerman now turns his unique photographic perspective to music.
Music includes 50 eminent musicians, composers and producers from rock, pop, hip-hop, classical, country, jazz, and more, who have made an impact on their genre, contributed to the larger conversation, and have a unique perspective on life.
The photographs are amazing and I regret that I can't get anywhere near the quality on the blog but believe me they are stunning.
And the production values achieved by PQ Blackwell illustrate why the publisher is internationally rated in this field.

From Russell Simmons, Iggy Pop and Ravi Shankar, to Roseanne Cash and Eve, and our very own Dave, Dobbyn, Neil Finn and Bic Runga, (pic below), the collection focuses on the thoughts and words and accompanying portraits of some of the most iconic living musicians amongst us today.

We can’t always understand each other because of a language. But everyone, in every culture, understands a battle drumbeat or a mother’s lullaby. – John Williams.

Five percent of the originating publisher’s revenue from the sale of books will be donated to a Music royalty pool that will be distributed evenly among charities nominated by the individuals who participate in the project.
