Carl Hyde to release stunning new book “Jazz Noir”

Written by | Coming Release, News, Photography

World renowned Photographer Carl Hyde is to release a beautiful new book “Jazz Noir” on October 18th. It is a stunning tome, full of beautiful portraits of some of the giants of the Jazz world.

In a world that’s so used to reading on mobile phones, tablets, iPad and other electronic devices, “Jazz Noir” is not just a proper book, but also a testament to the good art of publishing, reading and looking at a book that’s made of paper!

Carl has been photographing jazz for well over 10 years and has been photographer at Ronnie Scott’s since 2014.  His works have been featured on Musica Jazz (Italy), Jazz in Europe, Ubi Bene (Germany),  Rake magazine (Russian edition), The Financial Times, The Guardian, The Observer, The Times, The Daily Telegraph, UKVibe, Kind of Jazz, Jazzwise, Jocks & Nerds magazine. Several of his works are also adorning the walls of “Upstairs at Ronnie’s”, some of them being large prints of his photos.  Next time you are there for a gig and a drink, look around and you will discover how stunning these photos are!

The book is the first in a collection (to come) from a vast catalogue of works spanning over a decade from live performances, sound-checks and backstage shenanigans.
