The Silverbook celebrates New Orleans’ ongoing contributions to Jazz: the wealth of performers, composers, and not least, educators, that have left their marks on this still living, still evolving, musical form. Conceived and brought to life by composer, performer, arranger, and educator extraordinaire, Harold Battiste, the Silverbook is an immaculately prepared and annotated collection of some of the best New Orleans’ compositions from the second half of the first century of Jazz. While the meticulously copied manuscripts would be welcome additions to any professional jazz musicians’ library, it is Mr. Battiste’s vision that this book be an important resource for the next generation of Jazz artists. In keeping with that vision, the Silverbook includes biographies and numerous photographs, a listening and reading list, as well as insights on structure and intent of the compositions.
