Prague Jazz Book

If you prefer your Prague Jazz in coffee-table hardback style then it could be worth picking up “That Jazz of Praha”. Published by Vitalis, it features fourteen stalwarts of the local scene, including Karel Růžička, Robert Balzar, Najponk and Jiří Stivín.

The book has some excellent back and white photography, with both portraits and action shots. The only downside is that the text is in German, but then you don’t buy coffee-table books to read!

More details can be found at: (you have to scroll down).
I picked up my copy on sale at a bookshop in the Eden shopping centre for about 120 CZK: the bargains are out there!
