Everyday Jazz Lives
Encounters with the Birmingham Scene

Since 2019 jazz researcher and ethnomusicologist Pedro Cravinho and freelance photographer Brian Homer have been investigating the jazz scene in Birmingham UK.

By interviewing and photographing jazz musicians they have been able to provide a glimpse into these musicians’ lives both on and off stage. Beyond the visual stereotypes of jazz performance they have revealed some of the interesting and unusual activities that musicians take part in. This has involved Brian in photographing musicians in some unexpected places including on a building site, in an operating theatre and on a post round.

The photographs and interview quotes highlight little seen aspects of musician’s lives and how they negotiate developing their careers and their everyday lives. The book features 26 Birmingham area based musicians with each shown in a performance-related situation and in an off-stage other activity.

200mm wide by 260mm tall, black and white 64 pages + cover, perfect bound.
