Heart & Soul
Bob Merlis and Davin Seay

From the decline of the Big Band sound to the emergence of black pride, Sly, Superfly and the Funk, Heart & Soul celebrates the nearly half-century of vibrant, flamboyant, and extravagant flowering in African American culture that enriched the entire world. With more than 400 original photographs, publicity shots, posters, magazine and album covers, and advertisements in full color, this is a story of hot music and high style, of people who made history by being themselves and made the world a richer, wilder, and definitely cooler place for the rest of us.
